Happily Surprised: Visiting Newport, Oregon

I’m been very lucky and have had a chance to visit some really cool places in my life. But there are times that I ‘m surprised when I go someplace like Newport Oregon and am expecting nothing much and am surprised by the place, the surroundings and environment. Newport is a sleepy fishing town 100 mile Northwest of Eugene Oregon directly on the coast. It’s home to the Coast Guard and also West Coast operations of NOAA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. I just found the town of about 7,000 to be really quaint and offer some amazing views of the Pacific Northwest and some really great food, pictures to come.

All I can say is that this week was pretty darn good, and I enjoyed getting a chance to be a tourist in the evenings after working all day.
