Lighthouse Fence

For this week's Good Fences I'm going back to Oregon - to Cape Blanco. When we visited the lighthouse on a brilliant summer day I noticed the fence made of thick strong rope.


Let's have a closer look.


I do like this special kind of fence - it fits into the landscape and is a good companion to this beautiful lighthouse. With all the lichen on the rope it must have been here for some time - and it still looks sturdy and strong. But as you can see, there is also a "regular" fence that was quite pretty as well.


Along the coast you find lots of cow parsnip - no wonder it made its way into this photo!

Beautiful photos...especially the first one. We have a lot of cow parsnip in our province. It's taking over the fields and ditches!

I have a huge weakness for lighthouses - and love that rope fence too.

My hubby and I are nuts for lighthouses. I may start a series of them.
