It’s National Lighthouse Day!


I think we should also have national beach hut day.

Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, Newport, Oregon

I can think of no other edifice constructed by man as altruistic as a lighthouse.

They were built only to serve. They weren’t built for any other purpose…

It’s not at all a scary climb in this historic lighthouse!

The View from Yaquina Bay Lighthouse Yaquina Bay Lighthouse View

Here’s a look at the lovely view from the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse to the sandy beaches below.

“A piece of Oregon history sits atop a bluff at the mouth of the Yaquina River. It is the Historic Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, built in 1871 and decommissioned in 1874. It was officially restored as a privately maintained aid to navigation on December 7, 1996. It is believed to be the oldest structure in Newport. It is also the only existing Oregon lighthouse with the living quarters attached, and the only historic wooden Oregon lighthouse still standing.” Source: Friends of Yaquina Lighthouses
