One morning we got up really early and headed off to Depoe Bay.
Early mornings in a fishing community is magical too with the sounds and sights of boats getting ready to leave the safety of the bay for the open sea. It truly was an experience I won't soon forget!
BTW, do you see the little beach in the corner there?
In all the times I have been to Depoe Bay (and there have been countless times), I had NO idea there was any beach in the city at all:)
Some of the life to be seen in the tidal pools further north...
One of the local residents--
I never tire of seeing them.
Might have already posted this..apologies if I did.
This is looking northward from the tidal pools.
Our visitors totally fell in love with them...
I can hardly wait to show them the ones we recently visited--
no slippery rocks there :)
I feel like someone is watching me!
Pink flowers! As you may know this girl LOVES pink.
Did I tell you my sweet kids bought me a iPhone this summer?
And, they made sure it was rose colored (technically rose gold)...
it is SO fun to be able to FaceTime them now and, not only hear them, but SEE them too!
Can hardly wait till my DD joins our bunch of Apple lovers:)
North of Depoe Bay, south of the tide pools, is the historic community of Taft (part of Lincoln City) and lovely Siletz Bay. And these guys are some of their more famous residents--
the Salesian Spit harbor seals.
They were more active then I had seen them before and we enjoyed watching them move about on land and in the bay.
Such fun we had--posting these photos brings back those days!
Hope you are making sweet memories this summer too!
