June 10-14 ~ Battle Rock Park and Beach, Coast Candle
Thursday, 06-14-2001 ~ Sunny with lightly scattered clouds. I walked across the street to Battle Rock Park this morning and shot today's pics for this quick update.
Local girls with their horses on the beach and town.
Views of Battle Rock Park and zoomed Port shot.
Some lamas in the morning sun next to our office.
After work yesterday we walked across the highway to Battle Rock Park (the dogs came along for a quick walk and swim too). I took this first set of pics from Battle Rock Park. The first image below is a wide angle view of Battle Rock Beach. Next is historic Battle Rock in a late afternoon sun with Red Fish Rocks and Island Rock in the distance. The last photo is a view looking down the vehicle access path with Humbug Mountain in the background. The map on the above left has our different photo spots highlighted.
Before heading down to the beach I turned to the northeast and took the first picture of Battle Rock Park's Agate, Quartz, and Jasper water fountain (our Agate Realty office is seen in the background). The last two images are zoomed photos of Agate Realty. Our new parking area is almost completed now. You can sign-up for a free YourName@BattleRockPark.com email address by clicking here.

The first picture below is a view looking down the beach from the bottom of the vehicle access path. Next is a beach walk shot. Last is view of Humbug.
The first pic is another surfline shot looking east down Battle Rock Beach. The last two images are Cabbage Rock and seastack shots (see map above for locations).
The set of zoomed pics below start with Cabbage Rock, then Monkey Rock, and ending with some stacks with Humbug as a backdrop.
More beach shots: First Humbug, then the large stack seen in the above photos, and finally a look past the large stack towards Hubbards Creek Beach.
Below are more views from the south side of the large stack seen in the previous pics. Monkey Rock is seen in the last image.
I took this last set right before leaving Battle Rock Park.
I stopped around the corner from Battle Rock Park and took the first two photos below of Norma's new listing Coast Candle and Traders West (see map above for Coast Candle location). You can see the top of Humbug in the photo on the left.
Next stop is at Paradise Point for some late afternoon pics (see map above for location). The last image below is a view from the Paradise Point parking area looking north towards Cape Blanco.
We finish yesterday's session with more views from the Paradise Point parking area. The first image is a wide angle shot looking south. The second pic is a zoomed view of Agate Beach (I have some great images of Agate Beach, Garrison Lake, and Paradise Point Beach on my Hike on the Heads 2 feature). Our last pic has an ATVer on Paradise Point Beach with Klooqueh Rock in the background.
Maybe someday I'll finally get to those Bandon/Coos Bay pics that I keep mentioning. I wanted to post yesterday's images while they were still fresh.
