Heceta Head Lighthouse

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 10 June 2019 in Architecture.

Built in 1894, the 56-foot (17 m) tall lighthouse shines a beam visible for 21 nautical miles (39 km; 24 mi), making it the strongest light on the Oregon Coast. Heceta Head is named after the Spanish explorer Bruno de Heceta, who explored the Pacific Northwest during the late 18th century. Before him, Heceta Head was a spot of frequent fishing and hunting by the American Indian tribes that populated the area. Heceta Head Lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

I have just read that a stay in those cottages includes 'wake to a decadent seven-course breakfast ' . . includes fish, I imagine !
