10/2/12–A Day Trip to Depoe Bay, OR and Newport, OR

We took a day trip to Depoe Bay and Newport on Tuesday 10/2/12.

It was getting windy, and there was quite a bit of wave action on the ocean side.


In contrast, the bay seems very peaceful.2

Back on the Pacific Ocean side the surf was looking rough.


We had a very good lunch at the Sea Hag in Depoe Bay then drove around a bit.  This custom Volvo had a very unique trunk ornament.



We continued to Newport as we wanted to find some dungeness crab for dinner.  We went to the seafood market/café in port area of town.  When we first walked in this cashier had her mouth full of food and was telling us how good it was.  It was a taco filled with pico de gallo and fresh tuna.  We purchased a couple of dungeness crab and some of the fresh bay shrimp to take home for some fresh seafood meals at home.


This is the cashier who cleaned our crab for us and put it on ice.  Before leaving with our purchase, we were given one of the tuna tacos to try for ourselves along with some guacamole to go with it.  Although it wasn’t that long since we had our lunch, we managed to share it and it was excellent!


The harbor in Newport always seems to be a favorite hangout for the local sea lions.  Some were bathing on the rock jetty.



Others seemed to prefer the dock.


Before heading back to the RV in Lincoln City, we stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things.
