In summary, a group spent the night before a birthday celebration at a B&B on the Oregon coast, with beautiful views from their window of the lighthouse and the surrounding area. They also visited the B&B's garden and the lighthouse itself, including a glimpse of the Fresnel lens. The group enjoyed the picturesque scenery and good weather, with one minor complaint about not having a storm. The trip was also a reunion for some friends, who shared memories and made plans for future visits.

Great pictures: I love the Oregon coastline. The storm surges make it even more spectacular.

My daughter lives in Portland (a starving social worker), she is getting married on the 16th. I am going to drive up on I-5, and then come back down on 101.

Very odd. About half the time I can see the pictures, but even after a refresh and clearing the temp files, other times I can't.

Beautiful pictures! Now I'm depressed, no one takes me anywhere. :frown:

Ivan, that happened to me at first, I'm glad you mentioned it, I thought it was just me.

Just now I can't them again. I could during my last post, but after a page change and coming back, they're gone.

At first I thought it was just me as well. I even called Integral and asked why he's posting captions without pictures.

Oh man. Your pictures make me homesick. I love the sun and the sky here in Arizona, but I sure miss the green and the beautiful sea. Thanks.

That bridge is one of my work projects. We are running an experimental cathodic protection system.
