We took a quick trip to the Oregon coast this afternoon, visiting Cannon Beach.
After arriving, we ate a quick picnic lunch in the car and then headed to the beach. Bundled-up people and the happiest dogs greeted us as we walked toward Haystack Rock. I was taking pictures of the clouds and noted, “Looks like it could rain soon.” I turned to continue on my way to Haystack Rock. Suzi wisely suggested we head back. Even though we did so immediately, it rained and hailed on us before we reached the sea wall — and then it stopped.
We toured our favorite art gallery, selected our favorites, and left them behind. We explored the nearby toy store, playing with bristlebots and finding a large metal bug sculpture that would look great (ha!) in the garden.
On the way home, we discovered the storm that had dumped rain and hail on us, snowed on the passes of the coastal mountains.
Another great day on the Oregon coast!

Sounds like a great day!
Indeed it was. :-)
Love the pictures! Looks like it was beautiful. :)
It was. Too bad you couldn’t come with us this time. You would have enjoyed it. Of course — it was the beach. :-)
Lovely spot in the world! We had two walks there recently and one was a wild/ windy/sand-in-the-mouth kind of walk and the next day it was all a blue skies/rolling ocean/sunshine kind of walk. Do love that place.
Yes, it’s beautiful there. No two days are the same. Always something new to explore and experience. Love it!
