Natural and Man-made Beauties
I don't know what holds my attention longer: the view at Battle Rock overlooking Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve, the food at the newly opened Redfish Restaurant, or the exquisite Hawthorne Gallery next door to the restaurant. These are Port Orford's premiere destinations, great view, superb food, outstanding art.
The young man on the motorcycle is Chris Hawthorne. He, his wife Julie, their children, sisters and brothers are all artists, in different media. Their work is featured in many museums and galleries.
When they opened Redfish Restaurant, named after the Redfish Marine Reserve you can see by sitting on the patio above, Port Orford received an additional jewel, an enticing and well appointed restaurant with world-class pedigree. We ate lunch here today, delightfully constructed salads with grilled salmon for hubby and chicken for me, freshly baked bread, delicious wine, and a view unequaled anywhere.
WE don't have to leave home to have great food anymore.
