The Oregon Coast : Podcast 27

The Oregon Coast : Heceta Head Lighthouse

After our stay in Ashland, we headed up the Oregon Coast with our son, Brian.  We wanted to visit the beautiful coast, share it with Brian, with our eventual goal to go on a whale watching tour in Depoe Bay.


Along the way up the Oregon Coast, we checked out beaches, lighthouses, whale, sea lions, along with a fabulous lunch at the Bandon Fish Market.  The whale watching tour will be in Podcast 28.

We loved the Oregon coast.  I think that Sue and I could say that it’s definitely one of our favorite places that we have visited.   There are a ton of things to see and do, but time so frequently limits us and we had to cram in a number of things, but not get to see everything.

While March was a great time to visit in terms of smaller crowds, it had the disadvantage that the weather was a little bit more challenging, and some attractions were closed.  We had one cold day and several wet, windy, rainy days.  None of the lighthouses were open for tours yet, so that was disappointing, and we were in the first whale watching tour of the year for the tour company we went out with.  But we had a great time, nonetheless.
