Cannon Beach at sunset is so peaceful and relaxing.
Heather had an idea: let’s go to Cape Disappointment and see some lighthouses. What a great idea!
The sun set behind the tree beyond the puddle in the road.
Every year, I post my favorite photos. Some years, I’ve been able to cut it down to my top ten, but not this year. For that matter, I couldn’t limit myself to fewer than eleven photos from Cannon Beach… :-D
Many years, I’ve also posted my top nine from Instagram, but again, not this year, as I posted fewer than nine on Instagram during 2019.
These picture all make my happy. I could imagine printing all of them and hanging them on my walls.
I hope at least one makes you happy, too!
Sunset at Cannon Beach is pretty special. I just can’t get there every evening. Thankfully, KGW8 offers a live webcam.
Tonight’s view was gorgeous!
Sitting on the couch, updating my blog to a new theme, I heard Ashley preparing to leave. And Suzi and Heather preparing to leave … for the beach!
With two hours to go until sunset, it was the perfect time to head west.
Another great day at the Oregon coast!
“Mom’s going to be home from work soon. Wanna go to the beach?”
Oh, that ranks right up there on my list of favorite questions. :-)
Doing the math, an hour fifteen there, we would have about 15 minutes at the beach before sunset, stay at the beach a while longer, then an hour fifteen back.
“Yes, that sounds like fun! I’m in!!”
Suzi got home, we packed up the dogs and headed to Cannon Beach.
As we got there, the sun was low on the horizon. Ecola Creek headed South quite a ways before joining the Pacific. So we joined the dogs in wading across the creek and out to the ocean. The dogs played in the water, we took pictures and enjoyed the beautiful weather and gorgeous sights.
Yet another fantastic time at the beach! :-)
Today, Suzi, Heather, and Gilligan met Ashley, Kevin, and Mousse at the beach. The dogs immediately ran into the river then greeted every dog on the beach. We walked to the Rock and back. Everyone had a great time.
Yesterday, mid-afternoon, we decided it was a good day for a Cannon Beach visit. Jamison grabbed his drone and camera, and Jamison, Suzi, and I headed for the beach. We stopped by Insomnia then drove nearer to the Rock.
Jamison set up his drone and took off. I held his phone while he took some pictures and video. I hadn’t seen Jamison use his drone before. Too cool! :-)
Not long after we arrived, the sun set and we left.
Every day at the beach is a good day!

Last Saturday and yesterday, Suzi and I visited Cannon Beach — twice. It was glorious!
On Saturday, we went with Ashley, Kevin and family.
Yesterday, we arrived later afternoon, visited Insomnia, and walked to the rock. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the water so far out. And it was warm! Normally, the water is so cold that my ankles ache immediately upon stepping into the water. This time, wading was no problem.
After eating, we took our chairs out onto the beach and watched the sun set while people walked and cartwheeled by.
