Places I’ll Never Forget (Hopefully !) #4

Oregon Coast

It was way back in 2005 when I last visited the USA, on that trip I flew into Seattle and headed for the Olympic Peninsula (that’s for another blog post) and eventually on to the Oregon coast. The sense of space and big skies will always be in my memories. The weather was very much like UK weather so I felt quite at home ! and the people were really friendly.

It was in the days before I had a digital camera, all the photographs were taken on either my Olympus OM2sp or OM2n on Kodak Elitechrome 200.

Pacific Ocean




Depoe Bay
Stopped off by chance at Depoe Bay, really lovely little town, went whale watching which was fantastic, and bought the best cotton T shirt I have ever had, can’t beat genuine American cotton.


In the evening the pacific mist would come rolling in, it gave the place a magical feel.

That sense Of Space



Sea Lion Caves, Florence OR

Heceta Head Lighthouse

I really loved the Oregon coast, only wish I’d made more notes of the places where the photographs were taken.

    I also love the Oregon Coast. My son went to U of Oregon which is several hours inland.. A few summers ago I went to visit him. It had been very hot in Eugene but we drove out to the coast and just drove randomly for a day. It was cool and misty and beautiful. We also went to the sea lion caves, where we rode the elevator down, and to Heceta Head, and had the best salmon and chips at a little place called Luna Sea. I took along a disposable camera and shot the whole thing that day and it’s one of my favorite rolls 😁

      You are so lucky to live near to such wonderful country, so jealous. I took the elevator to the caves it was really something but a bit dark to get any decent images. Would love to explore eastern Oregon one day before I’m too old. :>)
