236Days #130 Docks at Garibaldi

Boat Docks for Fishermen at Garibaldi Bay Oregon USA

Boat Docks at Garibaldi Bay Oregon USA

A calm day at the docks, the smooth water reflecting all the pilings perfectly. This bay is a route out to the Pacific Ocean in Oregon, USA. Garibaldi is a unique little town. The bay is nearly a huge circle not unlike a bowl surrounded by hills. At one time it was both a fishing town and a logging town. Today the logging part is not happening but the fishing boats go out daily to fish. If the boats are small they anchor and fish in the bay, depending on the wave heights and weather the others head out to sea crossing the bar to the great Pacific Ocean.

When the tide is out there is some clamming to be done in the muddy backwaters. Perfect little clams for a chowder. And yes, that is the voice of experience talking. I have both clammed and made a delicious clam chowder over a campfire when we had set up camp. Hubs, our four children and I had great fun there digging in the mud and finding our treasures.

If you love the outdoors and don’t mind the rain, Oregon is a great place to be. Hang with me and periodically I will be your travel guide, sharing the wilder places we call home.

    I’m due for a trip to the coast one of these days. It’s been far to long. 🙂

    What is it about the Oregon coast that makes it instantly recognizable? I love the sort of comfortable wildness we have in this state.

      I didn’t know you are in Oregon also. Our coast is always gorgeous!! Also the water is so dang cold. Surf fishing is painful until the legs are numb, at that point you can enjoy. 😀
