August 19, 2017, Depoe Bay, Oregon – An urgent message to
eclipse lovers in Oregon from Mayor Barbara Leff of Depoe Bay on the
central coast: The news is incorrect that it has rained here for the
past three days. It has not. Our restaurants, hotels, shops and gas
stations have stocked up, dressed up and filled up to welcome you.
The central coast of Oregon–from Lincoln City through
Newport–is ready for you to come out and enjoy our once-in- a-
lifetime eclipse. Depoe Bay and our neighboring towns to the north
and south beckon: The sun is shining. The whales are frolicking. The
forecast for for the next two mornings is clear.
Come and share with us the total solar eclipse in the morning of
Monday, August 21, 2017.
