Last week I took a quick trip to the Heceta Head Lighthouse B & B for "work" (for the "top secret" assignment I mentioned last week). Although I went down on assignment, I classify this trip to Heceta Head as vacation. As you can see it is a very magical place to visit.
This was the first vacation I have ever taken alone & it may go down in the history books as the most romantic solo trip of all time. I took walks on the beach, hiked up into the forest & spent some time in reflection. There was almost nobody around as I explored & it felt a bit like vacationing at 'worlds end' - my own private play ground.
The property is nestled among the cliffs of the Oregon Coast & you feel very removed from the modern world. The B & B is the original Inn Keeper's House for the Light House on property (currently under construction, restoration to be complete by December 2012). Today the property is a historic site with a rich history dating back to1892.
The view from my room was absolutely breath-taking. I looked out to the spot where the cliffs meet the Pacific Ocean. The sound of the waves crashing against the cliffs was mesmerizing. Needless to say, I slept like a rock. It was truly an amazing trip, one I will treasure always. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Oregon Coast, put this location at the top of your list!
