Watching the Seals

Newport, Oregon 97365, United States

Created By: maria vijarro


This little spot is the Newport Historic Bayfront. We walk around and go to little gift shops and stores. We also watch the seals interact with each other while we stand on the pier. The kids really enjoy going to watch the seals and take pictures of them. There are so many interesting places to visit on the bayfront, one of them is Ripley’s believe it or not museum. As we walk around the bayfront we can hear the seals interact with one another and they sometimes fight with each other over their spots. They are very interesting to watch and hear, and they are used to being around people. Most people go just to see the sea lions and take pictures of them. Me and my family usually spend about 30 minutes to an hour just watching the sea lions. After that we go to the little cady store where they sale a variety of candy including saltwater taffy. The Bayfront is usually very busy with a lot of people and their dogs. The atmosphere is so positive, and everyone is so friendly. It is truly fascinating to watch as the sea lions bark and growl at each other as they try to slide up onto the doc and snuggle up with each other. I always teach my children about the importance of protecting the water because it is vital for life. We must keep these beautiful mammals well and respect all living creatures. As we work up an appetite, we find a little spot named Mo’s and we order delicious clam chowder. It is rich in flavor, and it is truly the best I’ve ever had. This Mo’s restaurant is located on the bayfront as well. Everything that you need is here on the bayfront and that is why me and my family love it and we can truly spend all day there.
