Although it was very cold that day the sky was clear. Can you see the lighthouse? I used to fish on that area with my oldest son. I quit fishing when I got pregnant with my youngest. I think it will not be safe for a pregnant woman to walk on the breakwater. I know most people fish for fun and food but I mostly fish for food lol. This is why I miss my home town, there's abundance of sea products and mostly are fresh not frozen.
We also drove by the Marina, I actually parked the van at the parking area of Newport Shores Restaurant so I could snapped few photos. During summer time you will see a lot of private fishing boats and yachts here but this time I didn't see even just one. I saw a lot of wild ducks though swimming as if it was there summer time. Brrrrr how can this creature enjoy the freezing cold water? The water was even covered with ice and snow.

Where the smoke coming from is the Port Washington Generating Station. This used to be a coal-fired station and is now a natural gas-fired, electrical power station. My hubby said this is only a reserved or back-up facility and only being use if there is a shortage of electrical power. We had tried fishing on that area too because that's where fishes usually hang out, trout and salmon love the waving water coming out from the station.

You will find me walking here during summer time, either fishing or just gazing at how much fish some of the folks caught that day, or just enjoying nature. I also walk with my kids and my friends, it is kind a bonding/relaxing time for us. Port Washington it just beautiful and well taken care of. That day when I drove through Port Washington only my 5 year old son and I can verbally appreciate this beautiful view because the other two kids were actually less than a year old babies. They probably loved what they saw but couldn't verbalized it.
