From the publisher's desk: The quintessential coastal town, then and now

The Minute Cafe in Bandon, Ore., a quintessential coastal town. The Daily Triplicate/Michele Thomas
It was 20 years ago this month that I first meandered into Bandon, Ore. I was on a work assignment in Gold Beach and decided to explore. 

What impressed me most that afternoon was the charm of a sleepy coastal town. The faded Coquille River Lighthouse was the backdrop for magnificent haystacks and bird sanctuaries along the rugged coastline. Homes near the jetty were rustic cottages and fishing shacks the color of bleached cedar in the shadow of windy bluffs offering magnificent views.

As an “inlander” from the Rogue Valley, I was awed to discover an authentic beach town similar to some I knew as a child before development and tourists took over.
