Pics of the Day for July 24 and 25 ~ Trip to Brookings

Rogue River Bridge as seen from Wederburn.jpg (73955 bytes)Pic of the Day  Click on images to enlarge
Tuesday, 07-25-2000. Overcast skies this morning. Happy Anniversary Sweetie! Our Pic of the Day will feature shots from our Sunday evening trip to the Chetco River and Brookings. The photo on the left has some boaters fishing for summer run Salmon with the Rogue River Bridge above.

South end of Nesika Beach.jpg (51430 bytes)We left off just north of the Nesika Beach city limits. I stopped at a turnout on Highway 101 and shot the image on the right of a hazy south end of Nesika Beach. Nesika Beach is a fairly level beach so the wave action is intense with several rows of breakers creating a constant moisture haze that obscures the images whether shot from Port Orford or up-close like this one.

Fisherman heading out on the Rogue River.jpg (75935 bytes)Our next stop is at a Rogue River viewpoint that sits above Wedderburn (Gold Beach's neighbor on the north bank of the Rogue River). The picture on the left shows a fishing boat heading out on the river with the Port of Gold Beach in the background. I heard the summer salmon run on the Rogue River is a good one. The river east of the bridge was crowded with recreational fishing boats. 

The first photo from the set below shows the Rogue River Bridge in wide angle with Wedderburn in the foreground. The second image has the Port of Gold Beach with northern part of the town and hills in the background. Our last image in this set is a zoomed image of the salmon fisherman seen in the middle photo.

This next set of photos below (from left to right) show part of the Gold Beach commercial fishing fleet and processing plant, the Rogue River with Tom Cat Hill above, and some pleasure craft berths at the port with Old Town Gold Beach in the background.

This last set of images show some Coast Guard crafts docked at the Wedderburn station, the Gold Beach Airport with Cape Sebastian in the background, and finally Cape Sebastian viewed thru the haze with the beach at Gold Beach in the foreground.

Red MG with Battle Rock Beach in the background.jpg (76284 bytes)Pic of the Day  Click on images to enlarge
Monday, 07-24-2000. Foggy on the coast, sunny and clear inland this morning. Looks like it's going to be another beautiful day on the coast. Yesterday Norma was showing property in Gold Beach with a client who flew out here from Colorado to pursue their family dream to live on the Southern Oregon Coast. We agreed to meet after her appointments in downtown Gold Beach and from there travel to her new Chetco River listing in Brookings to install signs.

Battle Rock action 07-23-2000.jpg (64963 bytes)I was sitting at Battle Rock Park, watching the beach action and snapping pics (like the one on the left), and waiting for her call; and in drives a pack of vintage MGs. This group originated from Los Altos, California (just west of San Jose). They were traveling up the coast and had to stop at our magnificent Battle Rock Park for pics and ice cream. I grabbed Dan's digital camera and took the set of photos below showing some of their meticulously restored vehicles.

Humbug Mountain and beach in portrait.jpg (67733 bytes)Norma called at 4:30 PM and informed me that her showings were thru. I closed up shop and headed south to our rendezvous location in Gold Beach. I stopped at the Humbug Beach viewpoint on Highway 101 and shot this next set of pictures featuring Humbug Mountain and Beach. The picture on the left shows Humbug Mountain and Beach in portrait format. The first 2 photos below show action shots of campers having fun in the Brush Creek outlet, and Humbug Mountain and Beach in landscape format. You can visit my past Pic of the Day Humbug Mountain feature by clicking here.

Ophir and Nesika Beach in portrait.jpg (69865 bytes)I hopped back in the car and continued traveling south where I made another quick stop at the Nesika Beach viewpoint. The photo on the left shows Ophir Beach in the foreground with Nesika Beach in the background. The town of Ophir has a nice 9 hole golf course that's popular with our local hackers. The set of images below show Ophir Beach and Nesika Beach in landscape format, a zoomed image of the two beaches and Euchre Creek outflow, and finally a shot looking back (north) at Nesika and Ophir Beach taken from just north of the Nesika Beach city limits. Humbug Mountain and the Port Orford headland is visible thru the haze at upper left hand portion of the photo.
