  1. Shortly after moving from the beach in Ventura, Calif to Yachats, I had the most amazing opportunity to have a special Christmas visit and tour of the beautiful and newly restored Heceta Head Lighthouse and Bed and Breakfast. I had only seen it from the Coast Hwy. but had yet to actually take the time or opportunity to get this close to one of my most favorite fascinations ever! I invited a friend that had been there before and it was a great visit and a fabulous tour! The night was gorgeous and even the stars were out! It was one of the most beautiful and memorable nights on the coast ever! It was when my friend and I returned to Yachats that things took a turn. My friend and i had decided too take a little walk on the beach near my house. There is a set of about 3 stairs to access the sand and trail. As it was dark and I knew my friend did not know the path, I walked in front of her showing her the rail to lead her down a couple steps. I asked her to hold and I heard a strange voice say, “Okay.” As I turned to see that my pal was okay behind me, I was suddenly looking at a little girl (of about the age of 7 or 8). My friend is in her 40’s. I then looked up and saw my friend looking down too. I immediately said to her, “You may think this is crazy but I just turned around to check on you and was staring at a little girl.” She looked at me and replied, “dark pig tails and glasses?” OMG! We both saw her! Right away we just kinda chuckled and said okay we have baby with us! We later began talking about it and wondered if maybe she did not follow is from the lighthouse. After seeing this site I had to offer our experience. It was not scary in any way either. just very unexpected, to say the least.
