Heceta Head Lighthouse
May 12, 2009

The Heceta Head Lighthouse claims to be the most photographed lighthouse in the world.

Heceta Head Lighthouse flashes its one million candle power beacon every ten seconds and can be seen as far as 21 miles at sea. Built in 1894 and maintained by the United States Coast Guard.

The area surrounding the lighthouse is well-known as an outstanding wildlife area. Common murres lay their eggs on the bare rocks, and can be seen by looking down over the railing near the lighthouse. Brown pelicans commonly fly by, as do bald eagles. In May there may be migrating gray whales, although the two RV Gypsies did not see any on this day even though it was May.

Long known as a vacation destination, the resort village draws people who appreciate its unique qualities. A popular 3-day series of cameo performances by 20-30 major classical artists is held annually in July.
