Port Orford

July 19th– We needed a day out. I work sometimes 6 days a week and on my days off, I am in the mood for nothing. But, we needed to get out of town.

We drove the 50 miles south on the coast to Port Orford. It was the weekend before the Cape Blanco Music Festival, so part of what we saw was tons of vendor tents being set up and fields being turned into makeshift parking lots… not too pretty…


Our first stop was the Historic Hughes house. I love this house. I want to own this house, live in this house, and just enjoy the view. http://www.enjoyportorford.com/hugheshouses.html

We then went to the Cape Blanco Light house. It is still a working lighthouse, and the walk to the cliffs overlooking the ocean is just a short grassy trail. http://www.capeblancoheritagesociety.com/cape-blanco-light-station/

The day was not planned for photos. However I did get some to add to the gallery. I have more I will add in as time permits.
