Camera Lucida – The Sign

World’s Smallest Harbor

World's Smallest Harbor

Depoe Bay is not far from our home, about an hour and a half away.  It’s a cute town: fun shopping, nice restaurants, whale watching.  This sign caught my eye today. I know that Depoe Bay is the world’s smallest harbor, but when I actually think about its being the smallest harbor in the world…well, that’s something. It was quite busy, too.  A steady stream of boats was going in and out of the harbor the entire time we were there. I am sort of fond of The World’s Smallest Harbor.


This is my first entry in Julia’s My Red Page‘s weekly Camera Lucida Photo Challenge.

Julia’s instructions state:

The content of the post is completely down to you, share just the photo or be even more creative and tell us the story behind the scene, make it your own.

I was looking for something ironic for this challenge, but The World’s Smallest Harbor seems to fit the bill just as well.

Here’s a related post, Wordless Wednesday: World’s Smallest Harbor, with more pictures of Depoe Bay.  It includes an impromptu video I shot of a couple of boats zipping in and out of the channel.  You can see how narrow the channel really is.  It is my first video, so please don’t expect cinematographic excellence!  😉
