The Harbor Fence


While traveling along the Oregon Coast Highway we came to a small town - a village really - called Garibaldi. Rather an unusual name that I would expect in Italy but not necessarily in the Pacific Northwest.

Garibaldi has a rather big port for such a small place and like in any good harbor there was a seafood place we visited for a very late lunch. The food was delicious and afterward we walked around a bit. That's when I saw this fence.


I liked all the buoys attached to it or hanging from the overhang of the building right next to it.


It was quite colorful, and there different shapes as well. I really liked this sign:


Oh, and also this buoy!


I'm linking up with Theresa's Good Fences - always a great place to go to!

I love those colorful buoys and also the warning about the butts! Why do people throw them down as if they aren't litter?

I really like the colourful buoys along this fence in your photos. Harbours are great with their boats and fishing huts and wharves. I hope you're having an enjoyable summer. It's going fast!

First of all, LOVE and appreciate that NO CIGARETTE BUTTS in the water" sign.

And I must admit, this is a perfect way to spend my day...viewing your fantastic images of the harbor. No place better on this earth in my opinion.

I've been to Garibaldi, it's a fun and quaint town. Your shots of the bouys on the fence are fun and colorful. That was quite a sign.

Carola, in Maine the different colored bouys indicate a particular lobster boat license. That definitely means there are lots of colors and designs.

Looks like a great place for fresh seafood, as long as we take care of the oceans!

Einen schönen und interessanten Blog hast Du, liebe Carola... da werde ich gerne noch ein wenig stöbern und mal wieder vorbeikommen!

Ich habe mich sehr über Deinen Blogbesuch und die lieben Worte gefreut! Auch Du hast einen geliebten Menschen gehen lassen müssen, das ist nicht einfach... es braucht Zeit und Energie, da hast Du wohl recht. Uns bleiben die schönen Erinnerungen, aber uch die Vorfreude auf einen goldenen Herbst.

Hab einen guten Start in die Woche und sei herzlichst gegrüßt ~ Jutta

Thanks so much for sharing this incredible photo! Garibaldi looks so beautiful, especially this buoy fence.
I would love to see the Oregon Coast Highway someday. My husband is retiring the beginning of 2016,
I'm putting this on our list of places to see.
Hugs,
Jody
