|These two photos were taken quickly through my passenger side coach window. |
I was really surprised they turned out well enough to see the seals.
We hadn't gone far (north on US 101) until we drove into the small picturesque town of Depoe Bay. I couldn't help noticing the "Clam Chowder" sign on a small storefront and as luck would have it, a nice long place to pull the rig off on the side of the road was right in front of us.
|A hearty bowl of really good clam chowder.|
In addition to enjoying delicious gluten-free clam chowder (yes it really was good), we stopped in several shops and, as usual, bought nothing. We then stretched our bodies over the bridge rail to see the dock "goings on" below us.

|We are standing on the bridge directly over this harbor seafood dock. |
The two people in this picture are processing (killing) the huge, beautiful dungeness crab you see in the boxes nearby.
It was a dreadfully cruel sight to see.

I wonder if any of them ever fall in.
|The beautiful Pacific is behind me in this picture. Depoe Bay is directly across the street from where I'm sitting.|
|We saw three seals frolicking in the water below where Wayne is standing.|
