North Head Lighthouse Near Ilwaco, Washington

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Long Beach RV Resort in Seaview, Washington. My scheduled departure date is July 10th.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. The construction of Mary’s rental continues along…slowly. She now is hoping to rejoin me by early September.  😦

Last year I visited the North Head Lighthouse near Ilwaco, Washington. The location is frequently subjected to winds in excess of 100 miles per hour and days upon days of fog. I was lucky enough to visit it on a delightfully sunny day. You can read about this lighthouse by clicking this Wikipedia link…


As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Here’s a 1947 view of the area as seen on a sign…





Heading towards Bell’s View Overlook I can see the top of the lighthouse through the trees…





I came across some old concrete structures that were part of Fort Canby during World War II…





Looking north up the Washington coast as seen from Bell’s View Overlook…





A sign showing a map of the area…





Walking towards the lighthouse I looked south where I can see the jetty and Oregon on the far shore overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River…





Finally I approach the lighthouse…





The lighthouse is 116 years old and starting to show its age…





I love photographing patterns and forms. The view is inside the lighthouse looking straight up towards the top…





Here’s the view leaving the lighthouse on a different path. The effect of the strong northerly winds show plainly on the trees…

North Head Lighthouse Near Ilwaco, Washington



I’ve been here in the Ilwaco area several times before and always enjoy this beautiful area.


Yesterday was a cloudy/sunny day at 63 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy/sunny and 66 degrees.

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

The red dot on the below map shows my approximate location in the State of Washington. You may double left-click the map to make it larger…





Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
