A landscape photographer's tour
Keith's travels in the Pacific Northwest - September-October 2010
Cape Disappointment, near Long Beach, Washington
A very short drive down from Long Beach takes you to the mouth of the Columbia river.
This is Cape Disappointment - a State park
A rather pleasant day - the North Head lighthouse
A closer view
I went inside to have a look - this is the actual working light - looking north
the view south
A detailed view shows the bulb - 12v and only 35W
If you look at either side of the bulb, you can see the auto replacement unit, which rotates a new bulb into place, when one blows.
Not a difficult place to access, but Karen decided to stay below :-)
The beach in the distance is Long Beach
Later, we returned to Long Beach for coffee
Note the size of this pickup next to the bus
Now compare the pickup to the RV behind it.
The car rather too close to the back of the RV is being towed by it.
just what we need for UK country roads :-)
Whilst I still rate Dodge pickups as the most awful looking vehicle in a rear view mirror, there appears to be a lot of these weird box like vehicles.
Quite dreadful from almost any angle.
Lots of things to do, although we're going to miss the cranberry festival...
Time for coffee and pie at the deli I visited testerday
A few shots of where we're staying (Inn at discovery coast)
Very nice views
And the usual sunsets :-)
