Summertime! Time for Cannon Beach, Oregon

Summer in the Northwest has arrived! The past few days have been exceedingly hot and to escape the heat, I went down to Portland for a little beach vacation. Cannon Beach is a small beach-side community that has worked hard to maintain a small town local feel while also taking advantage of the natural beauty and fantastic sand that draws people from around the region.

Located right on the beach is Haystack Rock, which is a marine sanctuary and instantly recognizable for anyone whose been here. The beach is very nice with fine sand and warm (for the Northwest) ocean water, as well as waves for surfing. It was a great way to spend the day and FINALLY get out in the summer weather!
