While waiting for the fog to lift, I took the lighthouse tour. The lighthouse had reopened after a two-year, 1.6 million dollar makeover on June 8th of this year.
I climbed the stairs to the ever rotating Fresnel lens with its powerful 1000 watt lamp.
After the tour, I spent some time watching the Common Muers and Cormorants that were nesting out on the adjacent rocks..
Watching the waves crashing against the rocks is always interesting.
Even with all fog it was a very interesting day at the Heceta Head Lighthouse.
