So finally (finally) we are leaving Cape Blanco. I know I said I probably wouldn’t take anymore pics of this spot, but can I help it if the gorgeousness of the Cape just sucks me in and captivates me? And as if that wasn’t enough she decided to send us off in style, with a [...]
We’re winding down to our very last week here at Cape Blanco. It’s almost impossible to believe. We’ve spent the last 3 months volunteering on the southern Oregon coast and it feels like we’ve grown roots. But such is the nomadic lure that I’m getting the pull to move again. This past weekend we saw [...]
I can’t believe it’s been 5 days since I last posted. There’s a truth to the saying that time flies when you’re having fun, especially when you’re in magical spots such as Cape Blanco. Between our multi-daily hikes, spectacular views & lighthouse hosting we really haven’t felt the need to go or do anything else. [...]
It’s one of those super-crazy-foggy days today. The type of day where the fog is so dense it precipitates and falls like light rain from the sky. On top of that the wind is eerily still giving the impression of a world that’s waiting…waiting…waiting. Days like this are best spent inside drinking hot chocolate and [...]
I left you dangling in the last post with the tease of more sunset pics & glorious vistas (what can I say…it’s just the kind of gal I am), so I figured it was finally time to bring you out of your agony and share the shots. Of course, this being Cape Blanco we’ve been [...]
I spent last night dreaming about lighthouse keepers. Part of it’s being in this remote & crazy place, part of it’s the book on History of Female Lighthouse Keepers that I’m absorbing like a sponge. Many of these women followed their men to Lighthouse posts in god-forsaken spots and became widowed or [...]
Steadfast, serene, immovable, the same,
Year after year, through all the silent night
Burns on forevermore that quenchless flame
Shines on that inextinguishable light!
The Lighthouse, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, circa 1848
There is something so very moving about lighthouses, especially those who have never extinguished their light. They remain alive [...]
I know I said my last post was my last one in Bandon, but it’s just been so darn nice I couldn’t help taking a few more pics. So, this is the last one…really it is. Between then and now I’ve managed another sunset shoot with Gunta (no where near as exciting as “The [...]
Believe it or not this is our last week at Bullards Beach State Park. Two months have gone…pfffft…just like that. It seems like only yesterday we showed up and arrived “home” and now we’re ready to pick up the jacks and leave. It’s a bittersweet moment. We’ve loved our time here, enjoyed Bandon, adored [...]
