Merry Christmas to All! It is hard to believe that Christmas Eve is here but it is so we wish all our readers a very Merry Christmas and we hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Today was a gorgeous day here in Port Orford – bright sunny skies with at high of about 15C (60F) – a perfect day.
Today we went to the local grocery store to pick up a couple of last minute items then headed to Cap Blanco, and lo and behold we saw the coast, water and lighthouse bright and clear – what a difference than the other day with total fog!!

We also drove down to Hughes House,
a historical house built in 1898 – it looks lovely!
From there we headed back to Port Orford and just started driving around – what a pretty town. We found Garrison Lake, with a lot of pretty houses around it, and other roads that had really nice houses with a view. We stopped at Paradise Beach for a bit and walked down to the beach and watched the waves crashing in.
Today was our day for spotting wildlife, we saw three deer (all in different places) about 6 sea lions off Paradise Beach and a porcupine. The porcupine is the only guy I got a picture of and it isn’t a great one!!
Once back home we called our daughters who were celebrating Christmas together tonight with their families, we really miss them so it was so nice to talk to them and wish them a Merry Christmas. We will call our son and our siblings tomorrow, so even though we aren’t with them for Christmas we will have talked to them and feel in our hearts that we are with them at this special time of year.
Our Christmas dinner was a salmon filet that we had bought at Qualicum Beach, B.C and it was delicious. The dishes are now done and we are looking forward to a nice quiet evening.
And so ends another great gift of a day here on the Oregon Coast and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
