Doe Bay Tradition

After I posted on social media about Doe Bay Fest in August, my dad sent me this picture.

The couple in the photograph is Lewis and Eunice Latham from Ajo, Arizona. Eunice was the sister of my great-grandmother. My father’s middle name is a tribute to Lewis Latham.

In the late 1930’s, Lewis and Eunice drove from their home in Arizona up the coast to Washington state, where they visited a relative – and apparently made a stop at Doe Bay on Orcas Island. To drive such a distance for a social visit was quite unusual in those days. In fact, their trip made the local paper back home in Ajo.
