With my many trips to Cannon Beach already this year, I’ve started to notice changes in the sand level on the beach. Another trip, the rocks on the inland side of Haystack rock were completely covered by sand. Yesterday, the rocks were exposed and surrounded by water even though the tide wasn’t in. Even though I wasn’t able to talk anyone else into going with me1 it was a good day at the beach. Warm weather, sunshine, and cousins.2
Late afternoon, Ashley knocked on my door. “Dad, are you almost done working? Would you want to go to Cannon Beach to see the sunset?”
In a few minutes, the three of us were out the door and on our way. We made it to the beach with enough time to hike to Haystack Rock before the sun dipped behind the waves.
What a great way to end the day!
Btw, a day that had started with another picture from my photo spot, across the street from the Hillsboro airport.
Cannon Beach never fails to delight, regardless of the weather.
A steady blast from the south has scrubbed the beach clear of its dunes, down to hard pack sand. Rain only adds to the Oregon fun.
The tides are higher than I’ve ever seen, nearly reaching the beach’s edge.
I hope your weekend is going as well as ours.
Here, in no particular order, are my ten favorite photos I made in 2015.1
