In Newport where the local Oregonians don’t burn they rust! Where the redwoods embrace and love the fog, and it seems like you have stepped into an enchanted forest. To the endless sandy beaches, getting battered by the winter storms, which are starting to march there way across the northern pacific, remnants of typhoons in Asia. To the fisherman braving the seas and fog to put the seafood we love on the table. The estimated 20,000 grey whales that migrate down the coast to Mexico to breed, to the seals playing in the cool water and staying out of the way of the big sea lions belching on the rocks. And to Noaa, who are based out of Newport, keeping us updated and safe with weather forecasts..
What a beautiful place to visit.
