Out and About The Coast

Just wanted to spend a few minutes on some things happening around the Southern Oregon Coast.
Lighthouse is offering Father’s Day tours:
Evening tours of the Umpqua River Lighthouse will be conducted from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, for Father’s Day.Fathers are admitted free with family for this 30-minute tour. There is a limit of eight people per tour. Regular tour admission prices are $3 for adults and $2 for children ages 6 to 16.
Sign up at the museum’s front lobby at 1020 Lighthouse Road in Winchester Bay. For more information, call (541) 271-4631.

4th Of July there will be an Airshow at the Mill Casino, starts around 11:30am and ends around 2:30 pm. Should be a lot of fun, take your camera's as there are sure to be some great shots to be had. Sounds like a great way to start your 4th Of July Celebration before the big night! Oh yes and remember the Mill has their fireworks display on July 3rd, so don't forget to mark your calendars :)
Just remember to play it safe, and only use fireworks in an area that has been approved and ONLY fireworks sold at legal fireworks stands.

Just want to say that the weather is starting to look more and more like summer now and the beaches are a great spot to cool off and have fun. I know a lot of people love to go to Bastendorf Beach and light off fireworks (even though it's posted not to do that), but if you insist on having your fireworks at the beach, please be nice and clean up after yourselves, it's sad to see so much trash and spent fireworks littering the beautiful beach the next day, and it's unsafe for the animals that share them it with us.

Speaking of pets, if your looking for a fine dog or cat, puppy or kitten, be sure to check our Animal Shelter (or any animal shelter in your area) first. These poor pets need a loving home and someone to care for them, why not adopt one in need.
The Coos County Animal Shelter is at 92960 Southport Road in Coos Bay. Shelter hours are from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Good Day and Happy Bloggings
