Sharon, do you know if Seattle might have some Beach Roses, aka Dune Roses, Salt Spray Roses, Rosa rugosa?

Along the Atlantic shore, a rose with some honking great rose hips is almost invariably Beach Rose - a non-native that's naturalized to parts of North America.   Very hardy and unphased by salt spray, occasionally useful for stabilizing beach dune systems.  Perhaps they also found their way to shores in the Pacific NW and that's what you saw near the docks there?
