The Bounty of the Sea!
Odd Shot is hosted by Katney of Katney’s Kaboodle.Â If you’ve ever captured an odd or even down right strange photograph, this is the place for you!
The World’s [Literally] Skinniest Latte Shop is on San Juan Island in beautiful downtown Friday Harbor, Washington. The shop is built i what used to be the alley between two buildings.Â It is an ingenious use of space.
Lisa came to visit from Nebraska so I drug her into this coffee shop and insisted she buy a drink.Â I had a pretty good mocha.Â Lisa ordered a Chlorophyll Cocktail.Â If you like kale, I mean really like kale, you would have loved this drink.Â Me, not so much.
The service was friendly.Â The shop is adorable.Â And the whole event excited me so much I walked out without paying and my guest had to pick up the bill!Â I am quite the hostess, don’t yu know.Â Pft.
Your sea bounty is so fascinating! I have never seen this before! And the coffeee shop must have been an amazing experience!!

Gemma — I love the sea life in this part of the world. It is fascinating. I have been in the latte shop twice and it’s quite amazing, too.
Only you can publish shell poop on the net ! lol !
The coffee shop is really mini !
.-= GattinaÂ´s last blog .. =-.
Gattina — that’s not poop. Those are the casings of dearly departed sea worms.
The shell is fascinating and a very good shot. Your pictures are so clear.
That shop is cute. I see your ploy worked.

Nessa — there is much fascinating to photograph here. The clear pictures are the result of steady hands and a truly great camera. And, I felt like a heel forgetting to pay but that girl was so sloooow my coffee was gone and forgotten about 15 minutes before Lisa ever got her drink!
I love wacky places like this! A Chlorophyll Cocktail just begs to be tried, with a name like that.
Your clamshell against all the black (rock? sand?) is gorgeous.

Susan — the Chlorophyll Cocktail was vile, but Lisa drank it. It was juiced kale, spinach, broccoli and lime juice — with a bit of wheat grass thrown in because it was the last thing to be juiced.
And the clam shell is sitting on a huge black bolder. Amoeba, who isn’t a geologist, is researching what it is, but has so far only managed to rule out a couple things it isn’t with only 5493 more to go …..
ROFL! I don’t think I would FIT in that Latte Shop! That is hysterical! GREAT idea though!
I love the shell!
.-= MelliÂ´s last blog ..Snow Fun! =-.
Melli — I fit. In fact, Lisa, I and the barista all fit. Amoeba then joined us. We were able to close the door behind him, but suddenly the place was waaaaay too small.
The shop looks a little claustrophobic for me, but a great use of space. I don’t think I could have drunk the chlorophyll cocktail, though.
.-= Barbara H.Â´s last blog ..Book Review: Mrs. Dunwoodyâ€™s Excellent Instructions for Homekeeping =-.
Barbara — I tasted the Chlorophyll Cocktail and it took me a half hour to rid my mouth of the taste. I am certain it is every bit as healthy and good-for-you as can be, but that doesn’t mean it tastes good!
The shell shot is lovely.
I’m fascinated by the little shop. I can’t imagine working there all day! If I were to get coffee there, I’d probably shout my order in, rather than try to squeeze in!
.-= ColleenÂ´s last blog ..WOW! =-.
Colleen — you’d fit in the shop and it really isn’t too crowded for one, but when four of us scrunched in, I wanted back out!
cute latte shop. i wouldn’t fit in but am sure i’d love it.
the clam shell is fascinating
.-= polonaÂ´s last blog ..winter valley =-.
Polona — you’d fit just fine. I fit. And, the ceiling is way high. Oh. Those baskets and shelves might irritate you a bit, but they aren’t on the customer side of the cash register. I thought that shell was a wonder myself.
Interesting macro shot. Clever idea to build a shop like that. I see the feeling that we wouldn’t fit in is almost univiersal…
.-= RavenÂ´s last blog ..Saturday Wordzzle Challenge, Week 98 =-.
Raven — I am claustrophobic and I was comfortable in the shop until 3 customers filled it. Then I wanted out.
I wouldn’t mind paying for a great hostess ^_^. Like the name of the Latte shop “skinniest”.
Macro-Dama de noche
.-= Manang KimÂ´s last blog ..Dama de noche =-.
Kim — but would a great host forget she offered to pay? 😉
Those are great photos. I love that shell. 🙂
.-= ThomÂ´s last blog ..Guess Whose Back? =-.
Thom — thanks. I left the shell on the beach. I am very glad I did because Amoeba later told me that’s a nature preserve!
They should call it the sideways shop Quilly. Nice series
.-= John McDevittÂ´s last blog ..Monday Musings: Flower Bud & Wet Leaves =-.
John — it is pretty sideways!
That shell is beautiful! What a find!
.-= jayÂ´s last blog ..By: Kiki =-.
Jay — thank you.
That really is a skinny shop
a wild and wonderful seashell~
.-= TammieÂ´s last blog ..Eternal Breath =-.
Tammie — thanks for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed my photos!
Great hostess indeed 😉
But I’m sure you made up for it in other ways 🙂
That shop looks great and what an idea!
Love that shell with the shells too.
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..Nabq Nature protectorate, Sharm el Sheikh, South Sinai, Egypt =-.
Nicole — I sure hope so!
And here I thought I could get a really tall, skinny cup of coffee!
.-= kcinnovaÂ´s last blog ..BUNNYCAM update! =-.
Karen — and maybe you can, but the one I bought was in a standard cup. 😉
Love the shell! Did you bring it home? The shop seems very unique – a resourceful owner with good use of space. You’ve made it famous.
As for my snowflake shot. It wasn’t that I really didn’t like it. For a first attempt I should be pleased. I just wanted one lonely perfect snowflake all by itself with great detail. It’s supposed to snow more tomorrow so maybe I’ll get some more practice.
Carletta — the shell was on a preserve, so the only thing I carried away were photographs and a little brown rock that lodged in the tred of my shoes.
I look forward to seeing more of your snowflake shots.
