We made it back to the Oregon coast. When we pulled into our campground it was raining. We found a FHU site with lots of shade and a few mosquitos flying around. lol The campground is South Jetty Thousand Trails. The campsite has a forest/beach feel to it. 🙂 I think we will be happy here for Fouth of July. If the moquitos stay away.
The next day it was sunny so we decided to do some exploring. Before the lighthouse tour we found a letterbox geocache. This is our first letterbox geocache. A letterbox geocache has a stamp inside. I saw a letterbox geocache on The Geocaching Vlogger. He makes me laugh & learn.
The Umpqua River Lighthouse sits next to a whale watching area. The lighthouse has a unique red Fresnel lens. During, the tour we could only stand on the third step to see the lens. At the Cape Blanco lighthouse tour we could stand right at the top of the lighthouse by the lens.
Most of the tools the lighthouse keeper used are displayed at the museum.
We had our lighthouse passport stamped in the museum next to the lighthouse.
