Vacation Time

Tom whisked me away to Cannon Beach.
If you know me,
this is just a small, handful of places,
anywhere in the world,
 that I love to visit.
We arrived to Picture Perfect weather!
A room with a view and nothing obstructing it.
And a friend, too!

During our 6 1/2 hour drive to Cannon Beach,
 we talked a lot about
And we knew where we were going..

How could we go wrong with a name
like this!
We knew just what we wanted!

Tom surprised me with a room that had a gas fireplace.
(It was lit most of our stay.)

The first morning we walked the beach,
even before the sun came up.
 It's a mile down to Haystack Rock,
which looms in the distance.

On the way back, the sun was coming up.

I had to take a picture of this fort.
It was a work of Art!

On our way back to our room, 
we stopped for one more cup of coffee.

The evening news reported that we were in for a
huge storm!
This was going to be the BEST vacation,
I think!
We could see the storm brewing and
 getting closer.
At the height of this storm, it was going to be
 High Tide!!

And it got higher and higher!!

People were lined up all along the bulk head
taking pictures, Tom and I included!

These pictures below were taken from our room!

The waves came up over the bulk head,
over the grass lawn, right up to the deck of our room!
We watched with excitement!
And then the tide started heading back out.
What a thrilling show, God put on for us!
After the tide was way out,
I went for a walk on the beach
 to see what I could find.
Nothing but Sea Foam and weeds.
This is looking back at where we were staying.
My friend was watching me and
 kept me company.
It looks like waves, but it's all foam!
Back in our room, we watched the sunset,
along with my faithful friend.
Our last night dinner at the beach
has always been, Dungeness Crab!
It was a GREAT vacation!!

If you ever get a chance to
visit the West coast,
you can't go wrong stopping and staying
at Cannon Beach!
"The Lord is my strength and shield;
My heart trust in Him, and I am helped.
Therefore my heart exults.
And with my song, I shall thank Him."
Psalm 28:7


  1. It sounds like a lovely get away.

  2. Oh Christine, what a lovely get-a-way!!
    Those leave us feeling refreshed and ready for the next thing. The gase fire place was a nice touch with a storm brewing.
    I do hope to have a get-away soon...

  3. I have never heard of Cannon Beach but now I want to go there. What a wonderful vacation! It sounds just perfect except for the weather. But it seems you enjoyed even that.

  4. Oh I am so glad you had a wonderful time. I love the pictures and makes me so jealous. I am getting a little antsy for some beach! The crabs look wonderful but I love crab meat. A fireplace in your room? How wonderful. I would have not wanted to leave! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. When we left Colorado for Oregon we toured the coast from Astoria to Gold Beach. Cannon Beach is very pretty. We stay in Yachats when we go to the coast. So far it's been our favorite spot. Enjoyed your travelogue :) Hugs.

  6. What a wonderful geataway!!! I enjoyed all the pictures and stories of your precious getaway together! And how awesome to get to see such a storm come in and yet not fear, but watch in amazement! I loved seeing the pictures of your faithful friend too :) So happy you had this special time together, and such good food too! Fish is always a favorite when we travel too :)
