While on the way to my Astronomy Club meeting yesterday, I left a couple of hours early and took some photos along the coast and dropped by the Port Orford Heads State Park where I've been meaning to go for years. It's an old U.S. Coast Guard Station that operated in the early to mid last century. I've attached a link to the site if anyone's interested.
