I love the town of Newport, Oregon. It isn't just a tourist town and nice place for a vacation, it is a real working fishing town. There is a memorial walkway running parallel to the waterfront with embedded plaques in memory of people who died or were lost at sea, a reminder of what is really involved in getting your fish and chips to the table and also a reminder of the families for whom fishing has been a way of life for generations. Different types of seafood are caught and processed in large industrial buildings on the waterfront at different times of year.
This painting shows white boats docked at the Newport Oregon waterfront on the Pacific Ocean.
