walked from Weber's Pier to the Coquille River Boat Basin and shot this
first set of images showing some commercial businesses located along this
strip (north end of Old Town). The photo on the left and first one below
features the Port-O-Call. The Port-O-Call sells colorful wind catchers,
fishing supplies, and tourist gifts. They also rent crab rings on an hourly
basis. The middle photo below shows the Old Town Mall. Located inside are
several shops and a restaurant/bar. The last image views the Canoe shop and
Bistro located adjacent to the boat basin (photo above right).
The pictures below are scenes from the

Service's Coos Bay headquarters. This property is located on a hill at the

buildings. The last photo features a cute boxer that greeted me as I roamed
I shot the first two photos below from the
forest service property. First is a view looking southwest at Coos Bay. The
middle image shows the view looking east at a saw mill located on the Coos
River. I moved to a spot just below the forest service property and took the
last wide angle pic of downtown Coos Bay.

~ Sunny and clear this morning.
Today we finally get to the pics from my May 16th visit to Bandon and Coos
Bay that I keep saying I'm going to post. We concentrate on Bandon's Weber's
Pier in this update. Weber's Pier is located on the northwestern end of Old
Town. A free, paved boat launch is available here for crafts wanting to
cruise on the Coquille River or cross the bar for Ocean access. The newly
constructed pier is often used by smelt and crab fishermen. The photos below
were shot from the southwest end of the facility.
The pics below start with a family walking
the plank down to the pier with the Coquille River in the background. Next
is a view of the family preparing their crab basket with the Moore Mill
building in the background. I walked out to the west end of the pier and
took this last image of a seagull taking flight.
The set of pictures below were shot from
the west end of the pier looking across the Coquille River to Bullards Beach
State Park property. The photos are wide angle views looking northwest to
Below are views from the pier looking west
to the mouth of the Coquille River.
The first photo below is a view looking
south towards Old Town. The lattice crane in this picture was there to pound
new pilings. The middle image is a view looking east at the soon to be
demolished Moore Mill building. I zoomed-in across the river and took this
image of the Coquille River Bridge, barely visible thru the haze.
This next set of pics was shot just west of
the pier's entrance.
In our next update we'll visit Old Town
Bandon, the Coquille River Boat Basin, Coos Bay (biggest city on the Oregon
Coast), and end with a walk on Bandon's Bullards Beach.
