Yaquina Bay's Haunted Light House

Newport, Oregon
June 8, 2009

Our summer road trip took us up through Northern California and out to the Oregon coast, where we found gray skies, green glens, and a haunted light house that Ellie and I had seen on TV (shortly after we visited the Whaley House).

The Yaquina Bay Light House, which was only up and running for a few years (1871-73) before the much larger light house out on Yaquina Head stole its thunder, proved just about as haunted as the Whaley House. Still, it's fun to poke around and try to get the docents to tell about what they've heard in the quiet hours.
