Yay The Sun!

It was raining good when we got up this morning and continued until almost noon. So, taking advantage of the “non-rain” condition we went out to explore. As we left the wooded campground we were greeted with a beautiful rainbow over the ocean as the clouds moved out and the sun appeared. Happy day!

Rainbow!

Rainbow!

I almost forgot how much better the pictures look with adequate sunshine.

In 1971 the State of Oregon purchased the Patrick and Jane Hughes ranch land including the 1898 house to develop into Cape Blanco State Park. The house is not far from the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and James Hughes, son of Patrick and Jane, was a life-long lighthouse keeper. Volunteers inside the house showed us around and told us the history of the site.

After the house tour we drove the short distance to the ocean for a walk on the beach.
