We were out to Westport, Washington in 2016 and 2018

Westport is a city in Grays Harbor County, Washington, United States. The city's
population was 2,099 at the 2010 census.

Westport is located on a peninsula on the south side of the entrance to Grays Harbor
from the Pacific Ocean. The public Westport Marina is the largest marina on the
outer coast of the United States's Pacific Northwest. The marina is home to a large
commercial fishing fleet and several recreational charter fishing vessels. A
summer-only passenger ferry, discontinued in 2008, previously connected the town
to Ocean Shores, across the mouth of the harbor to the north. Westport is home to
Westport Yachts, founded in 1964.

Westport was officially incorporated on June 26, 1914. Names for the area in the
past include Peterson's Point, Chehalis City and Ft. Chehalis. The latter name is
for a fort established in 1860 before the town was founded. The area was used
regularly during the summer by local Native American tribes (most likely the
Shoalwater Bay tribe) before Thomas Barker Speake and his family arrived early
in the summer of 1857. Westport is also the home to a station for the US Coast
Guard. In 2015, the school district became the first to build a publicly funded
"vertical evacuation" and tsunami shelter elementary school.

These images were made with my Nikon D810 camera and my fancy, schmancy
$1,100 (but I got mine for a lot less used) Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 AI-S
manual focus lens.
