On our day trip to Florence, we planned on visiting 2 lighthouses, the Umpqua River Lighthouse and Heceta Head Lighthouse. You can see the Umpqua River Lighthouse below. Unfortunately, the Heceta Head Lighthouse is under renovation and they have it completely covered up unbeknownst to us. A bit of a disappointment because, although I have been there before, I was excited that Mike was going to see it. Oh well.
I took some pics in the tidal pools below the Heceta Head Lighthouse. It is so much fun checking out the little critters in the tidal pools. Pics are hard to get because many are being shot through the water. I got a few I thought were ok and will put more on the blog from another location later.
