PODCAST 63: Oregon 2017 Part Two: Bandon, Shore Acres & Heceta Head Lighthouse at Night

Photog Adventures Podcast 5 Comments

Second Part of our Oregon Coast 2017 Listener Adventure and this time we are in Bandon, Shore Acres State Park and at the Heceta Head Lighthouse! This trip had been fantastic but a day of rain moved us from the Brookings area up to Bandon with hope that the skies would clear by sunrise the next day and boy did the skies change! We talk about our working hard to take advantage of the gap in the cloudy skies at Bandon and later on Shore Acres on our way up to Heceta Head Lighthouse. We ended up barely catching a short-lived mostly clouded out sunset from the road at an overlook across the bay from Heceta Head Lighthouse and then hike up to the lighthouse to capture it at night while the lights are shining. It was a stunning adventure from Bandon to Heceta Head and was made even that much better with another day of hanging out with Michael Shainblum and Serena Ho!

Again thank you to John, Kirk and Drew for joining us on the podcast to share their what went wells and challenges!

  1. I’ve enjoyed my recent find of your podcast! what type of keen watershoes do you have or recommend for the foundation of those nrs boundary socks?

    thanks and keep the episodes coming!

      Hey thanks, Norm! Really glad you found us! As for your question, I used these Keen’s for mine: http://amzn.to/2DG3f9b

      They were the same Keen’s that Drew and Kirk used mostly. Just slight differences. While it was hard to put them on the first time over the NRS Boundary sock, it really wasn’t that tough the second time and I LOVED having them over my socks when I was at Thor’s Well. On the beach, I would have been fine in my socks alone but it is way better to not have them act as the soles of my feet because they will last longer this way.

      Thanks again for the kind words and really glad you found us! By the way, how did you find out about our podcast? -Aaron

      1. hi Aaron,
        thanks for reply. I found your pod just doing an iTunes search and it was right up my alley….especially you guys are in Utah, next door to me in Colo. I’ve been to several great spots in Utah, but your Oregon coast pods have tempted me to the point where I’ve put it on my list. then, my wife just told me that she has an old classmate who has offered us a free stay in their guest house in Cannon Beach!

          haha a place to stay at Cannon Beach! Now that is going to be awesome! Easy to get down to Cape Kiwanda at least, if not ALL of the coast from there and you will have a great place to try several sunrises and sunsets! I am jealous!

          Glad you found our podcast and hope you continue to enjoy it! Let us know next time you are in Utah and we will keep you posted on the Listener Adventures which are free hangouts. We will definitely be out near the Colorado Border several times this year! 😀

          Glad to meet you, Norm, and glad your itunes search found us! -Aaron

          P.S. I am curious, what did you search for that helped you find us? 😀

          1. I searched “photography” and then “photog” came up and there you were!
            what do you recommend as a good month for Oregon coast?
            I like your pod because it’s clean and informative and you guys don’t try to be entertainers. good job w/specific info on neat locations.
