The World's Smallest Harbor

Depoe Bay bills itself as the smallest port in the world. Whether that is true or not, the point is well taken. The harbor is tiny and the entrance on the best of days is harrowing. When the surf is up a boat's captain has to time the waves just right or risk ending up on the rocks. In addition to the harbor Depoe Bay is famous for the Sea Hag Restaurant. I don't know if the owner, Gracie, is still there but it's fun to catch her playing music, spoon in hand, with glasses lined along the bar (Gracie passed about 2016). In any case the food is good coastal fare, the clam chowder is excellent and if you like oysters the oyster stew is great (a friend tells me)!
