Suzi, Melissa, and I took a quick afternoon trip to Cannon Beach.1 We were there long enough to visit Insomnia, walk to Haystack Rock, and watch the sun set. And take some pictures.
After dropping Melissa off for a flight home, I headed back to the car through SMF’s Terminal B skybridge.
Bicycling home from work this evening, I watched the clouds over my shoulder. At the old oak tree across from the airport, I stopped to take a picture.
I learned something this evening on the way home: the best view of the jet engine intake is not the back row — it’s the second to the back row. Good to know.
When we visit Cannon Beach, I like to walk to the south side of Haystack Rock to take pictures of the Needles. For this latest trip, it wasn’t much of a walk because we were staying at Hallmark Inn, just north of the rock. A couple of evenings ago, Suzi and I walked to take pictures.
This picture is interesting because Google+ automatically reviewed the pictures my phone uploaded, selected one and edited it. I like the result!
Here are the original picture and Google+’s version for your comparison:
Suzi and I were having so much fun at Cannon Beach that we decided to stay another night and invite the kids. What fun!
Happy New Year!
This evening, Heather and I walked around the neighborhood while the Earth continued spinning its path around the sun. The moon waited in the wings, soon to play a starring role.
