Saturday, 07-29-2000 ~ Sunny and warm again this morning. Today's update will have to be quick, we're scheduled to look at a new listing in Cedar Terrace at 10:00 AM. We finish up our hike on Hubbards Creek Beach today with some photos taken from the south side of the Battle Rock Beach seastacks and near the north end of Hubbards Creek Beach. The photo on the right is Monkey Rock, photos below show two of the seastacks at Red Fish Rocks, and Monkey Rock again in landscape format.
Our next set of pictures showcase how the sand and beach patterns can dramatically alter the look of similar images. The first pic was shot near the surfline looking back at Hubbards Creek Beach with the colors of the hillsides reflecting on the undulating shoreline, next is Humbug Mountain casting it's reflection upon the sand, and our last pic features some interesting sand patterns with Hubbards Creek Beach in the background.
Our last set of photos show a dramatic shot of beach walkers with the Siskiyou Coast Range in the background, a friendly gull with some unusual plumage, and finally some golden bluffs reflecting on the sand at Hubbards Creek Beach.
This concludes are Hike on Hubbards Creek Beach. Tomorrow's feature will include some excellent photos from our last night visit to Bandon. We stopped at the Face Rock Beach overlook and the Bandon Jetty with the Coquille River Lighthouse just over the river. Here's a preview of what's on tap for tomorrow, a photo of the beach south of Face Rock as seen from Face Rock Park (and this photo isn't even one of our best pics, I'm saving them for our feature).
Friday, 07-28-2000 ~ Sunny with scattered clouds and light winds. Today we continue with our visit to Hubbard's Creek Beach. I started this feature last week but was sidetracked by daily events. After all this is a daily update about life here on the Siskiyou Coast and sometimes events (new happenings and life changes) overtake your plans. For example we've been trying to get to Cape Blanco Beach for fun and pictures for over a week but the weather and work obligations kept overtaking our plans. We finally made it out there last Tuesday evening. Now I have all these great pictures (like the ones adjacent to this paragraph) but will have to wait until another day for publication because I promised a continuation of our Hubbards Creek story. Click here to visit last week's feature about Hubbards Creek Beach.
We left our Hubbards Creek feature with me working my way towards Battle Rock Beach (her neighbor to the north). I walked along the surfline and turned back towards Hubbards Creek Beach and shot the photo on the left. If you open the photo you'll see at the middle left the kids playing from last week's story). The set of photos below were shot from this location and show a seagull coming in for landing, trees and cliffs reflecting in the sand, and some gulls relaxing on the beach.
We'll try to continue our walk on Hubbards Creek Beach tomorrow (depends on what happens today). I'll intermix some preview photos from tomorrow's feature while you read the update below. The first image shows the cliffs at the south end of Battle Rock Beach, then a seastack located off the shoreline, and finally a view of Humbug Mountain with Monkey Rock on the right and an undulating and reflecting shoreline in the foreground.
Yesterday Kim (a producer for ZDTV) interviewed me by phone for our upcoming feature on their ZDTV's Internet Tonight show. They will intermix voice segments from our interview with some pics from our pages, Thank you ZDTV! The Kim Komando Show is also considering us for inclusion on their Cool Sites list. Super Cool!
