After having a picnic at Eel Lake we decided to check out Umpqua lighthouse. At first we missed the turn and ended up in Winchester Bay, where we visited a cute little Sourdough Bakery and bought some bread, lemon jelly, and a delicious Huckleberry chocolate bar. Then we headed back and found our turn again. The Umpqua lighthouse is a very small lighthouse sitting on a coast guard base-and it confuses me a little since it’s nowhere near the river or ocean-and too small to reach that far probably.

We met a squirrel, saw some crazy hippies with naked Barbies in their backseats, and then drove down to see the dunes and the coast guard tower on the ocean. It was still lovely and gray.
