Pay-to-use binoculars were on a stand at the Umpqua River Whale Watching Station. Notice a compass ring around the stand so that one could record one's direction of view after spotting a whale.

The Pacific Ocean lay just beyond the sand dunes. From this high whale watching station, one could spot whales well off shore.

The jaw bone of a sperm whale was mounted on a stand next to the whale watching station. Sadly, the sign describing the jaw bone was missing.

A small pet grave lay on the dirt directly under the whale watching station. A cross made of wood had a jar of water strapped to it.
