Historic Bay Front Of Newport, Oregon

Yesterday Mary and I spent a couple of enjoyable hours wandering the historic bay front of Newport, Oregon including the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse activated in 1871, at 38 feet high, it sits atop a small hill and is identified as the shortest lighthouse on the Oregon coast. Along the bay front are active fish/shrimping boats with associated processing plants, many restaurants and souvenir shops. In addition, numerous nautical murals on buildings and old paintings abound. All colorful, they offer numerous photographic opportunities.

Here’s a Google Earth view of the area…

Here are 12 photos that I took…
