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
FISH & CHIPS!!!
And we knew where we were going..
How could we go wrong with a name
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
This was going to be the BEST vacation,
We could see the storm brewing and
At the height of this storm, it was going to be
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!

My heart trust in Him, and I am helped.
Therefore my heart exults.
And with my song, I shall thank Him."
