This past Monday afternoon, Suzi and I made a quick escape to Cannon Beach to watch the sunset. We arrived with less than an hour to spare and parked at the beach end of Second Ave. Barely on the sand, I noted we wouldn’t want to walk very far. After all, those clouds over the ocean indicated rain. Almost immediately, it started showering on us. That is, it was just like we were standing in a shower, small drops coming down hard, at an angle. We were going to be soaked and soon.
After retreating to the car, we decided to drive south to Tolovana Beach. Worst case, we could sit in the car and watch the sun go down. When we arrived, there was only a light mist. So we walked out to the beach, took a few pictures, then headed back to the car because of the mist and the cold. We warmed up in the car and rinsed and repeated a few times.
Finally, once again warming up in the car, we decided to drive back north a bit to find a different view of the Rock and the sun. This time, we stuck it out until the sun went down.
Another great day at the beach!

Glad you got this getaway, Brent. You’ve been on my mind this past week, a lot. May the memory of your dad be a blessing in this time of loss.
Thanks, Sherilee! I have many good memories, including the 5 months he stayed with us this last year.
