Nice in Newport

There are just under 16 hours of daylight up here this time of year (if the clouds and fog allow the sunshine to reach the ground, and that is one big if). Which means that I can pack a lot of activity into each day. It also means that I don’t go to bed early. Unless I’m sick, it is hard to prepare for bed when the sun is still shining at 9pm!

It was easy to while away a long afternoon in Newport. There is a lot to see, if you take time to wander: spouting Gray Whale, Art Deco elements of the Yaquina Bay Bridge, Rogue Brewery, fishing boats at work and at ease in Yaquina Bay Harbor, undulating sea jellies, blue ribbon commemorating a fisherman lost at sea, sleepy Sea Lions, murals, and a good reminder.
