May 15 ~ Elk River, Port of Port Orford, Battle Rock
Tuesday, 05-15-2001 ~ Strong rain the last few days is slacking off to drizzle late this afternoon. We took Sunday off and drove up the Elk River to Butler Bar Park to have some fun with the dogs and try out our the new Mavica CD1000. Below are some pics from our afternoon visit.
Fun with Jerry and Angel at Butler Bar.
Later in the day (about 6:00 PM) I took these photos at an overcast Paradise Point. The first picture is a look towards the Heads. Next is a view looking north towards the Cape Blanco Headland. Last is a zoomed view of the lighthouse and point (I caught the beacon just as it rotated my way).
One more look south at Agate Beach from Paradise Point then off to the Castaway Hotel to get some pics of some Port action.
Below are some close-up boat hoisting scenes. All the images featured today have been resampled down to a 640x480 resolution. Click here to see a full-size 1600x1200 version of the last image below.
The photos below are views to the southeast towards Battle Rock Beach (seen in middle image). The zoomed picture of the fishing boat has the south end of Hubbards Creek Beach in the background.
More zoomed views from Castaway Hotel and adjacent Visitor Viewpoint.
The scenes below were shot from the Visitor Viewpoint. The Port/Fort Point Beach is a popular spot for doggie walks.
I turned east towards Battle Rock Park and shot this next set of images.
I then moved to a spot just above and to the northwest of Historic Battle Rock and took this next set of pictures of Battle Rock Park. A zoomed view of our Agate Realty office is seen in the last image.
A turn towards Battle Rock Beach, Humbug Mountain, and Battle Rock.
The first two photos below are more Battle Rock Beach scenes. The last picture shows our friends vacation rental, Battle Rock Villa.
I went to Ray's Market and when exiting noticed that the sun had appeared. I then drove back to the Port Visitor Viewpoint and took this last set of pics. A little sunshine caused dramatic differences in the views. These images were taken just an hour before the first viewpoint photos seen previously.
What do you think about the improved quality of these new Mavica CD1000 images? The photos above and over a hundred more were shot and stored on just one mini CD. These images were all full-sized 2.1 mega-pixel files too! Click here to see a full sized 1600x1200 version of the last image of Fort Point Beach and Orford Cove above. Soon we will offer full-sized Oregon Pics on CD like the two 2.1 mega-pixel images posted today.
