Photographer's Note

This photo was taken on Devil's Lake in Lincoln City. Actually the house is sitting on the town of Otis side of the lake but no really knows of Otis and Lincoln City is where people love to visit on the Oregon Coast. Not only do we have the beautiful Pacific Ocean and beautiful beaches but we have Devil's Lake that is a wonderful place to vacation with your family. At Devil's Lake you can witness Bald Eagles, Osprey, White Egrets, and Blue Heron(Just to name a few)mating and hunting on a daily basis.

I own a home on this lake and rent it out to vacationers when my family and I are not there vacationing. The lake is surrounded by very expensive homes...some of them over a million dollars and as grand as you can imagine....so when you come across this old rickety house it just kind of sticks out like a sore thumb. If you look closely you will see the house still has it's furnishings in it.

Last winter we had quite the wind storm and I surely thought that the trees that came down around the house would push the house to it's watery demise....but not so. Not one tree fell on the house and there were over a dozen that were over a hundred years old or so....

I posted this photo not just because I love this character of a house and I wonder what it's history is...but i also posted it for bakes888 Paul Baker because he posted a similar photo of a cannery in Ketchikan, Alaska. I recommend visiting Paul's gallery of wonderful photos. I learn from him every time I visit his gallery and I am never disappointed...Thank you Paul!

Take care,
