Great Oregon Road Trip: Heceta Head Lighthouse and Home Sweet Home

Read all Great Oregon Road Trip posts here.

After 10 days on the road, it was finally time to head back home. Our comfy beds were awaiting us and I know the boys were eager to get back to their toys. Absence makes the heart grown fonder, especially when it comes to Lego.

On the drive up Highway 101, we made one final stop at the Heceta Head Lighthouse, a beautifully historic landmark just North of Florence. Kei and I walked up to the top with the boys while Mum and Dad took in the ocean view from the parking lot.

After the walk back down the hill, Thomas and I spent some time on the beach.


It was a fitting farewell to a wonderful vacation. In a few hours we’d be home and then, in just a couple of days, my parents were headed on the next part of their adventure. We soon headed back to work and school, but with the satisfied feeling that comes from a vacation well spent. Thanks for the memories, Oregon.


  1. I’ve really enjoyed following your Great Oregon Road Trip posts. I discovered Oregon last year and absolutely love it. It’s fun to see the places that I’ve visited through a different perspective. Your photography is beautiful!
