Face Rock State Scenic Viewpoint

Monday afternoon I returned to this State Park, just south “Old Town” Bandon, Oregon.  The views from atop the beachside cliffs are incredible:

Since it was sunny (it was socked in by coastal fog the day before when I was here) I got another photo of “Cosmo,” a larger than life Tufted Puffin made entirely of litter found along the beach.

There is an organization in Bandon which specializes in making these art pieces out of trash from the beach.  Here is another one I saw downtown:

But let’s go back to the nice ocean views:

Here is a rock formation I’m going to be talking about in the next post:

This was an absolutely gorgeous spot to hang out, even if you never set foot on the sand below.  I preferred standing atop the cliffs watching the seagulls soar by above and, more often, below me along the hill.
