Moore Mill building, portrait format.jpg (44933 bytes)Moore Mill Building, Port of Bandon

Tuesday, 12-19-2000 ~ Sunny with scattered clouds today. Sunday morning I made a quick stop at the Port of Bandon to take some pics of the Moore Mill Building. The building is scheduled for demolition and I wanted to take some photos of the old place while it's still standing. The port originally planned to burn the structure down, but environmental concerns is causing them to dismantle and recycle the beams and planking. The set of photos below were taken southeast of building. The original north/south and east/west pier pilings can be seen in these photos.

The photos below were shot looking north at the Moore Mill Building.

Below are shots of the Port of Bandon, located just southwest of the Moore Mill Building. In the first two images you can see the Coquille River Lighthouse (located at the Bandon Jetty) in the distance. Our last photo today is a wide angle view of the Port as seen from the southeast.

The Moore Mill Building was one of just a few structures to survive the historic 1936 Bandon Fire. I'll try to post some links for articles about this historic building in the near future.

Battle Rock Park with mist in the hills, 12-6-2000.jpg (65452 bytes)Battle Rock Park, Miscellaneous Pics

Saturday, 12-09-2000 ~ Overcast skies this morning. I took a few pictures the last few days when visiting Battle Rock Park. The pic on the left I took Wednesday in the late morning. Some folks were having coffee on a park bench and enjoying our beautiful scenery. The hills across the Port Orford cove had developed light, low clouds and the image was especially spectacular.

The image on the right was taken with a little wider lenses angle to capture Red Fish Rocks and Nesika Beach (barely visible thru the haze). The ocean has been depositing quite a bit of kelp upon the beach, you can see some of the piles scattered on the sands in these two photos.

Battle Rock Park in the late summer.jpg (71737 bytes)This next pic was shot in the late summer. I took the two photos above from the area where the couple is standing on the left side of this image on the right. It's interesting to see how Battle Rock Park changes with the seasons. We have quite a few Battle Rock Park and Beach photos catalogued on our Past Oregon Pics page.

The last photo of the sun setting behind the Port Orford Reef was taken from Paradise Point State Park (click here to see a past Oregon Pics feature about Paradise Point). I included the photo on the left of Jerry Lee at the Elk River just because I haven't had any dog pics lately and thought this one was pretty neat.

Back Again ~ Sunset walk on Battle Rock Beach!

Battle Rock overview, 12-4-2000.jpg (62612 bytes)Thursday, 12-07-2000 ~ Scattered sunshine here in Port Orford today, the weather the last few days has been sunny, clear, and chilly. Today's new Oregon Pics were taken Monday 12-4-2000 between 3:30 and 4:30 PM.

Webmaster Note ~ I'm back! Special thanks to those whose sent encouraging messages during my absence! I hope to post more features and fun stuff when opportunity or moods permits.

I took a late afternoon walk on Battle Rock Beach Monday. The weather was especially nice; sunny with clear skies and no wind. The first photo below has historic Battle Rock with a misty Humbug Point in the distance. I shot the last two pictures below from halfway between Battle Rock and Cabbage Rock.

The photos below start with a foamy surf washing upon Battle Rock Beach with a rock hound and beach walker in the background. Our next two pics show Norma surveying some freshly uncovered beach stones.

Norma and Cabbage Rock, 12-4-2000.jpg (90307 bytes)The winter tides are slowly removing the sand that accumulates during the summer. Soon this beach will be covered with Jasper, Agates, and other beach stones. In the picture on the right and middle photo below you can see the summer sand line on Cabbage Rock (about even with the woman's shoulders in the photo below). It's interesting to compare this set of pics with the late summer photos shot on this beautiful beach. Click here to see our late summer, morning walk on Battle Rock Beach. Our last photo from yesterday's walk has a seastack reflecting on the sand with Humbug Mountain in the distance.
