So far we’ve experienced varying degrees of wind, fog, drizzle, clouds and sun here at Cape Blanco State Park.
We moved to a more open site yesterday, since only two days under the dense tree cover was already affecting our mental health. The cats were even becoming depressed!
But we definitely picked a great place to spend the holiday weekend. There are still vacant sites and it is eerily quiet. Yesterday Suzanne joined us here, and we all took a walk to the lighthouse after the sun came out in the afternoon.
Me, Suzanne, and Debbie.
We opted for the tour ($2 or free with a National Parks Pass), where we learned some of the history of the lighthouse and got to climb the spiral staircase for a close-up view of the enormous Fresnel lens.

Good weather or bad, we’ve walked the beach every day. Unlike California, Oregon’s beaches are pet friendly, so Debbie has been letting Rupert and Elliot run to their heart’s content.
Watching them play makes me almost as happy as seeing the sun come out!
