Port Of Newport Dock No 7

You can visit many docksides, here and there but, you will find that the ones in Newport on the Oregon Coast are working docks. This means that the fishing boats are not just for show, they go out to sea and catch fish and crab and bring them back to the dockside canneries.  Lots of hard work!

Usually, during fishing and  crabbing seasons these docks are a beehive of activity. When this scene was captured the bar and seas were rough and everyone was in port. Don't let the blue sky fool you!

It was a peaceful scene...nobody was out fishing however, some were working on their boats to get them prepared for the next good fishing day!
