236Days #130 Docks at Garibaldi
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.
