Heceta Head Lighthouse

August 16 — After spending almost a couple of weeks in and around Waldport, OR we once again travel south. My quest to photograph the lighthouses of the Oregon coast will be one lighthouse closer to accomplishment after our stop at Heceta Head.

It’s a gorgeous day, mostly sunny with no wind, and the Chiweenie Brothers and I enjoy the short hike it takes to get to the lighthouse.  The lightkeeper’s big house for him and his family is down the hill from the lighthouse A grand house it is, beautifully restored and kept up.

I encourage you to Google information on this lighthouse as it has some interesting history.

In addition to the big house down the hill, there are living quarters attached to Heceta Head Lighthouse also.  Space was tight and made it impossible to get everything in the photo.

Anyone care to guess what this is?
