Is that one of those….

As we peer across the Coquille River from the south jetty in Bandon, it sure looks like a lighthouse in the distance.

Didn’t I just complain a week or so ago that lighthouses seemed few and far between up this coastline?

Now they’re everywhere.

Ahhh, but this is the Coquille River Light.

The lightkeepers house got blasted in a storm some years ago and they didn’t rebuild it. The light was decommissioned nearly 50 years ago, but was renovated over the past 10 years. It’s now part of a state park.DSC_1506
