Newport, OR

Yaquina Bay to the Pacific Oceannewport sea lion

From barking sea lions, whale-watching, and windswept beaches — to the arching Yaquina Bay Bridge and working harbor — Newport has a rich history. This town on the central Oregon coast is all about commercial fishing, crabbing, seafood processing, scientific research, good beer, good coffee, fresh seafood, and tourism (where else can you find Ripley’s Believe It or Not just across the water from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration building?!)

Newport is also the setting for Christine’s first book, Tip of a Bone. Click the link below to see pictures of Newport!
