Broadway in some cities is called the “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” but in Waldport it’s one of the streets that leads to a neat part of town.

Follow Broadway down to the re-furbished port and you can choose from four eating establishments for anything from fresh crab to Mexican food. All of them delicious treats!

Of course if you want to launch your boat you’re in the right spot. Easy access and lots of parking. There is both shrimp and crabbing equipment available.

The scenery is great also and changes with the high and low tides. And of course this time brings lots of visitors so at time it can be busy. Lots of activity with from all over, the energy is good.

So some Broadways can be “Boulevards of Broken Dreams” the Waldport version of Broadway is one of one way to get to a active and interesting part of Waldport.

A part of town that represents the Central Oregon Coast with it’s spirit of adventure in both the culinary and restaurant world and the outdoor world of scenic spots and great places to go to and experience.

Take a chance and follow Broadway down to the port and enjoy what you find.

A few years ago at a writers conference held in the central Oregon coast town of Yachats, where I live, I listened to the late Ken Kesey, a frequent visitor to the area, tell a writer that this could be a hard place to write. “If you think you can sit there staring at the ocean for inspiration you’re wrong, it’s not out there, it’s in your head!”He was right; it is beautiful here in Lincoln County, the kind of beauty that makes concentrating on anything else tough and since hearing that insight, I’ve written at a desk facing a wall, no windows opening onto a ocean view, although I have one, but it’s worked.I’ve done, and do, different kinds of writing. As a freelance writer I’ve been a observational columnist, a humor columnist, a book and music reviewer for newspapers, magazines, and online.However, as a creative writer, my heart belongs to fiction. In that genre I do short stories, road adventure stories, musical adventure tales, and in current production, are three small novels.So really the purpose of this web site is to give you a glance of some of the things I’ve done, a preview of what’s coming, and hopefully, a view of what it’s like to be a writer living in a small town on the Oregon coast!
