Port Orford

Note in the upper left hand corner, the small fishing fleet at anchor awaiting a high tide to allow it to leave their sanded-in harbor and enter the North Sea. This is not unlike Port Orford, Oregon - where our fleet requires a bi-annual visit from an Army Corps of Engineers dredge/channel flusher to maintain our access access to the ocean. This area of England is part of the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Orford Castle - 12th Century

This area pictured above is "full of history, and even in the 16th century was a favored spot for visitors - in 1524 the monks of Bretton Priortu entertained the Queen of France to a picnic at Staverton Derr Park. Visitors are still charmed today; the countryside is a haven for all kinds of native flora and fauna; and the village of Orford itself makes a pleasant walk through to the ancient church."
