The city of Port Orford only occupies an area of 1.61 square miles, but it packs in a lot of natural beauty, history and geological resources. Home to less than 1,200 people, it boasts 3 state parks:
- Port Orford Heads where the Lifeboat Station Museum is located
- Paradise Point that offers spectacular sunsets
- Tseradiun, more popularly known as Agate Beach
And the 130-acre, fresh water Lake Garrison…
The docent at the Lifeboat Museum suggests a visit to Agate Beach after offering me a small sand polished stone.
Jeff only has to hear his caution about not wading into the ocean because of the dangerous undertows when, before I know it, we are headed for a rock-hunting expedition and an adventure with waves.
The beach access greets us.
The ocean waves entice us.
…Maybe a little too much!
