    Stormy Cannon Beach

    Monday evening, Suzi and I were relaxing before bed when the lights at the inn blinked. They were out only a couple of seconds and we were glad when they came back on. Unfortunately, not that much later, they went out again … and then stayed out. We still had internet, so I was able […]

    Rainy Cannon Beach

    Post-Christmas and the kids are all out of the house this week, so Suzi and I decided to take a quick trip ourselves. We headed off to Cannon Beach to see the Rock, the tides, and the waves. We detoured to Seaside first but it was so rainy that we barely got out of the […]

    Haystack Rock by DALL-E

    I wanted to see what DALL-E could create, so I registered an account and provided a simple prompt: “a watercolor painting of sunset over haystack rock at edge of ocean.” These six pictures are the result. So cool!

  • Cannon Beach escape

    Cannon Beach escape

    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 […]

    Tsunami at Cannon Beach?

    After a text this morning warning of a potential tsunami on the Oregon coast, I went to KGW8’s Cannon Beach Cam. I watched from about 8:35 to 8:50 am to see what I could see, but didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. That’s good news.

    This past weekend, Suzi and I visited Cannon Beach to celebrate our recent anniversary. Friday evening, we watched the Rock from our balcony. The next morning, we relaxed. We walked the beach, visited Insomnia, and walked the beach some more. At low tide, we wandered around the rocks. I found a few sea anenomes, but […]

    Cannon Beach

    Normally, we visit Cannon Beach shortly after the new year, and then multiple times throughout the year. This year, we tried to go in late January but had to turn around because of snow and accidents in the coastal mountains. Going through my photos, I see that we visited mid-March, and then not again. Until […]

    Cannon Beach

    Today, Suzi, Heather, Melissa, Jamison, Gilligan, and I visited Cannon Beach. Gilligan played fetch and swam the creek. Jamison flew his drone. We all walked to Haystack Rock and the Needles. And I took pictures. At the Rock, I talked to a gentleman who claimed to have walked through the cave on the side of […]
