    Did I use the right prepositin in this sentence?

    "They enjoy sitting at fishing harbours admiring sunrises."

    Thank you

    "At" is sperfectly correct. You could also use "by." And since harbors are often low-lying places, we frquently say say "down at" or "down by" the harbor, the bay, the sea, etc.
