Back to the bay

Our attraction to Coos Bay is actually for Cape Arago, an extended state park area located just south of the point where the bay empties into the ocean. We made another run to the cape during our week in Bandon.

There are actually 4 state parks along Cape Arago Highway in a four-mile stretch past Charleston where the highway crosses the bay’s South Slough.

Each offers something different, and we enjoy spending time in them all.

One of them, Shore Acres, has a very formal manicured garden area that would provide exquisite photo opportunities in the right light and right seasons of the year.

Shore Acres also offers views of the coastline that are remarkable beyond words. The two photos below were taken from the same spot…the first while turned northward, and the second while turned southward.

The shore at this point offers a substantial challenge to the ocean…and the ocean seems determined to undertake that challenge.DSC_1366
