Historic Bay Front Of Newport, Oregon

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Whalers Rest RV Resort about six miles south of Newport, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before and plan to depart here later this morning.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

In 2011, 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…

Yesterday was sunny at 63 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy/sunny and 73 degrees. At Mary’s home today is forecast at 100 degrees and 102 tomorrow! Makes me know why I am here!

Enjoying nice weather is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
