Port Orford

Lovely fog and cool weather at Cape Blanco lighthouse,
looked a lot like this, but luckily the sun cleared briefly so that my brother and his wife could see the lighthouse. They have been volunteer docents at Point Bonita light house in California for years, and they know a lot about lighthouses. Cape Blanco is special in that visitors are allowed right into the lantern room next to the Fresnel lens, which is so amazing to look at. Hard to imagine that one of the head lighthouse keepers held his job there for 42 years, working all night every night, carrying lard oil and mineral oil up the stairs and trimming the wick. I will look for a link to post so that you can read more.
