"Safe Harbor" Westport by Toughluck

Westport Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 80 photos

Washington State has an indented coastline. Numerous bays protrude into the state from the ocean. The bays provide safe harborage from the storms out on the ocean and are lined with wetlands, which are the homes of numerous waterfowl.

Numerous small ports line the coasts, set in from the ocean on the rivers that feed these bays. Most are now recreational marinas. Some like Westport still have commerical fishing fleets. Others like Aberdeen are major exporters of wood products and bulk lumber.
