The best thing about living in Newport, Oregon is the fresh seafood available every day of the week!
Newport, Oregon is famous for Dungeness crab, which is plentiful and can be caught using a crab pot right off one of the many piers....However, the really special catch for me is the more difficult to find halibut, which lurks a few miles off the coast. This photo was taken after a 60 pound halibut was caught last week, then flash frozen on the boat. My friend, who is also a real estate agent, put the fish in a cooler for me and left it at my desk for me to find when I returned to the office.
Just for you, a photo of Newport's Yaquina Bay Bridge as seen from the deck of a "soon-to-be listed" condo that I will represent in the coming week. The condo is located at the Embarcadero Resort in Newport and is a short distance from Newport's Historic Bayfront, a working fishing port where you can buy fresh fish, or throw a crab pot from the dock and try to catch a crab for dinner. We are currently under rainy skies, but that doesn't stop the fish from biting! As you can see, Newport is beautiful in any kind of weather, so come on out and enjoy the Oregon Coast, take Highway 20 from the I5 at Corvallis, drive an hour and you are here!
Call me when you are ready to search for your home in Newport, you might want to buy a house, "just for the halibut!"
