“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.
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 videos. I hadn’t seen Jamison use his drone before. Too cool! :-)
Not long after we arrived, the sunset 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 sunset while people walked and cartwheeled by.
Once a new year arrives, we love to visit Cannon Beach. This year we didn’t make it until the thirteenth day of the year. We’ve made it earlier in years past.
What a beautiful day it was! Blue skies, light breezes, and temps over 60. We started with hot drinks then walked to the rock. The tide was way out, the farthest we’ve ever seen. We met a few doggies on our stroll, including an amiable black lab sporting a GoPro on his back. I’d love to see his videos.
The sun reflected off the windows on the bluffs, forming shafts of light through the faint mist.
Then we waited with the others for the sun to drop behind the Needles.
Every day at the beach is a great day — and this one was extra special!
Normally, I take individual sunset pictures but this time I attempted a video instead. My replacement (refurbished?) Samsung Galaxy S6 doesn’t have the perfect magical color balance my first S6 did, so it’s too yellow. I’m looking forward to a better phone.
Feel free to skip forward in the video and the sound doesn’t add much.
