Day 28: Friday June 26

Today we left Florence and headed up the Oregon coast on Hwy 101.  It is a beautiful scenic highway that hugs the coast meandering through small towns.  We stopped for a few hours in Depoe Bay for a hope to see a Gray Whale.  No such luck… but we had fun looking.

Depoe Bay whale watching

Whale watching visitors center.  They are on the ocean and have three levels of look outs over the water.  They had three whale sightings the day we were there.  Summer is the peak time to see the whales.

Depoe Bay Harbor Inlet

Depoe Bay claims to have the worlds smallest inlet/harbor.  It is only 50 feet wide and 5 feet deep.  It was interesting to watch the big fishing boats navigate the inlet in the waves.  I’ll stick to the St. Lucie Inlet!

Depoe Bay - Seal begging for salmon

As the fishing boats came in they cleaned the Salmon by the water.  Notice the beggars (birds and the seal!)

Depoe Bay

Nice quaint town with fun shops, restaurants, & Rochelle’s favorite… candy stores.

Depoe Bay - eating the traditional fish and chips

Stopped for lunch at a fun restaurant.  Kids ate fish & chips, Rochelle had fish tacos, and I had a crab melt sandwich.  Yummy!!
