Lighthouses, Harbor, Bay, and Heron

Romantic names like Florence, Winchester, Umpqua, and Heceta Head make me wonder of whom they were named and why; treasures and history of the past.

They are places still busy with people continuing to write history as they go about their daily duties. Sea salts, brisk breezes, and blue skies brighten a February day.

A heron freezes at harbor edge, never moving as it keeps it's eye sharp for a tasty morsel.

    I grew up on the lower peninsula of Virginia...tidewater. Colorado looks nothing like your photos but Virginia does. You know, I have been to Florence as myhusband and I attended a conference in Eugene, Oregon about 1998. We drove over to Florence and saw the lighthouse!

  3. Beautiful photos!

    What lovely places to visit!
