Past Pics of the Day for August 7-10

Portrait shot of horses on a foggy Battle Rock beach 08-09-2000.jpg (37895 bytes)Thursday, 08-10-2000 ~ Overcast skies this morning. Yesterday's weather started foggy at the coast with a partial late afternoon burn-off. I spent the day at Norma's office at Battle Rock Park and shot several photos throughout the day to illustrate the changing look of Battle Rock Beach. We were planning to finish-up a feature from our Monday night Hike on the Heads but thought it would be best to post these shots while they're still fresh.

The pictures above right and first one below have a trio riding two horses on a foggy Battle Rock Beach. The next image was shot in the early afternoon and shows the beach with a layer of fog hovering above. The last pic shows the beach now in sunshine with just wisps of fog obscuring China Mountain above.

The last set of images are action shots from my yesterday stay at Battle Rock Park. The first photo has a dad and his daughters taking pictures with a gentlemen feeding seagulls in the background. I zoomed in and took this next image showing him tossing treats to the birds. Our last picture has a couple of ladies walking near the interpretive section with wild sweet peas growing in the foreground.

Tomorrow we'll finish our Hike on the Heads feature. After that I plan to post photos from my Wednesday night visit to Paradise Point with Jerry Lee.

Today's update is going to have to be quick, Norma's traveling to Brookings this morning to show some property and I'm covering the office. Today we start our Port Orford Heads State Park feature with a shot of the west endpoint of the Nellie's Cove trail (site of the old Coast Guard watch tower) with the Southern Oregon Coast in the background.

We start our feature with a set of photos shot from the Nellie's Cove trail overlook. Hubbards Beach seen from Nellie Cove overlook.jpg (58400 bytes)The image on the right is a view of Mill Rocks with Hubbards Creek Beach in the background. The first photo below is an Osprey that we saw flying over Nellie's Cove. This bird had a wing span of almost 6'. The next photo is a view of the Hubbards Creek outlet with Battle Rock Beach on the left and Hubbards Beach on the right. The large seastack in front of Battle Rock Beach is Monkey Rock, China Mountain is seen in the background. The last image is a zoomed shot of Rocky Point. Sometimes during negative tides we will hunt for clams just south of this point. Shellfish harvesting is temporarily prohibited now because of an algae bloom that is causing the shellfish to become toxic.

We walked further down the trail and came to an overlook with views towards Humbug Mountain and the Southern Oregon Coastline. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Gold Beach north jetty. The photos below start with a wide angle view looking south at Humbug with a commercial fishing boat in the foreground. The next picture shows the boat in close-up. Our last image today is a zoomed view of Humbug Mountain with some seastacks at Red Fish Rocks in the foreground right.

Our first set of pictures are scenes from the south side of the beach. The photo on the left is a wide angle view of the beach with Humbug Mountain and the Port Orford west coastline and headland in the distance. The pics below are action shots starting with Norma and Jacob looking for beach goodies, next is the two walking along the surfline, and our last photo is zoomed shot of a beach walker with the Port Orford Headland in the background.

Agate Beach shot from the Heads, 08-06-2000.jpg (74158 bytes)Monday, 08-07-2000 ~ Sunny inland and foggy on the coast this morning. Last night Norma and I took a hike on the Port Orford Heads State Park (click here to see our last Hike on the Heads feature). The picture on the right shows the view looking at Agate Beach and Lake Garrison from the north point of the Heads. We will post more pics from last night's hike on a future update. Today's update will feature a few pics from our July 26 walk on Cape Blanco Beach and action shots from yesterday's busy day at Battle Rock Park.

The first pic from the set below has Norma and our son Jacob walking down the beach access path. The second image is a zoomed view of the beach with the Elk River outlet and Humbug Mountain in the distance. The third photo is a wide angle view of Cape Blanco Beach with the Port Orford headland in the background.

Portrait shot Battle Rock Beach, 08-06-2000.jpg (64242 bytes)Tomorrow we'll post photos shot from Cape Blanco Beach. Our next set of images were shot yesterday afternoon at a very busy Battle Rock Park. The nice weather attracted so many visitors that every parking spot was taken when I returned to the office at 2:00 PM. I looked down at the beach and it was bustling with activity too (photo on left). People were flying kites, sunbathing, climbing Battle Rock, playing in the ocean, and walking the surfline. The photos below start with a view of the packed parking lot at Battle Rock Park. The final two pics are view shots of Battle Rock Beach as seen from outside Norma's office at Battle Rock Park.
