Oregon coast is beautiful, and temperamental. On one hot summer day, the temperature dropped some 20 degrees in less than an hour of driving towards the coast. Upon arriving, another surprise awaits. Under the glaring sun, a thick marine fog stares right back at us. The view offered by limited visibility was quite mythical.
The town of Newport has a historic Bayfront which is a working fishing port and home to a variety of shops and restaurants. It was fun to watch fishing boats unloading their catch, and leisure crabbers at the dock. We even saw a crab being pulled up!
Still waiting for the fog to lift, decided to grab a bite at Noodle Cafe. It may not be the obvious choice in a coastal town with half a dozen chowder and seafood places within a block of each other, but it was a wonderful delight.
