Yesterday was another nice day, 2nd in a row, sort of unusual lately. The northwest wind was coming up early today, so a fellow rider and I headed north this morning on Hwy 101 (to get a free ride back later).
We were heading up over Cape Foulweather (ride shown here: Today's ride on the Oregon Coast (w/pictures)) to a small coastal town named Depoe Bay about 15 miles north of Newport, Oregon and a state park a few miles further north.
Depoe Bay is known for being the “world’s smallest harbor”, and is basically a small inlet about 150x250 yards directly connected to the Pacific Ocean by a short channel cut through the rock cliffs. It has a small fleet of commercial, sport and charter boats. The charter boats take people on whale watching & fishing trips. We could see a whale spouting about ¼ off-shore from the harbor.
