|A Sunny Day in Depoe Bay|
Depoe Bay is a jewel on the Oregon Coast. The tiny town is packed onto a hillside next to the world's smallest working harbor. The main street is highway 101 past a densely packed couple of blocks of candy, ice cream, and tourist shops across from the seawall where waves can crash over the highway in heavy weather. But, on a calm and sunny day, you just can't drive right through town - you simply MUST stop and walk around, even if your destination is elsewhere.
Depoe Bay is also a great place to watch for migrating Grey Whales that often veer into the bay for shelter or a rest. And, although rarer, occasionally Orcas may also be seen.
