We gave ourselves a little time off from crabbing last week to enjoy the beauty of the Oregon Coast. We crossed this beautiful and historical bridge at North Bend and headed south toward Coos Bay, with a stop at beautiful Shore Acres State Park and on to Cape Arago.
From this Wikipedia article: The Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge, formerly the North Bend Bridge, is a cantilever bridge that spans Coos Bay on U.S. Route 101 near North Bend, Oregon. It is one of a series of eleven major bridges on the Oregon Coast Highway that were designed under the supervision of Conde B. McCullough, replacing ferries that had formerly crossed the bay. The bridge is outstanding for its attention to form and detail, and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places in recognition of its design and cultural and economic importance.
I took dozens of pictures at Shore Acres and will share more later.
Before we traveled much out of Oregon, we used to take for granted the way that evergreens and other plants grow right down to the sand. Now we know that all beaches everywhere aren't the same.
