Any time of the year is a great time to visit Cannon Beach. In fact, we have a tradition of visiting the beach on the first weekend of the new year. As our kids have grown up and moved out and away, it’s more difficult to do with everyone. This year, it would be impossible. So, rather than admit defeat, we went when everyone could — on Christmas day! After stockings and opening our presents, we loaded all of us and the dogs into a couple of cars and headed off.
Unsurprisingly, the weather was great and the company better. We skipped our normal visit to Insomnia1Insomnia Coffee, like everything else we like to visit in Cannon Beach, was closed for Christmas (except for the beach itself) and went straight to the beach. The dogs had a great time running around the beach and into the water. We walked to the Rock, took some pictures, and Jamison and Kevin flew Jamison’s drone.
