  • The weather was pretty nasty in Newport during the overnight hours. Downpours, wind, etc. The surf was great on the ocean-facing boundaries of Newport while the harbor was much calmer. Anywhere along Cliff Walk, the waves were huge! Even the surfers abandoned any thoughts of riding one out – just too dangerous. I shot my photos mainly from Ochre Point at The Breakers, but had I ventured down Cliff Walk, I’m sure the sight was amazing at Rough Point or even at Gull Rock.
