View from our hotel balcony
We arrived Sunday night at the beach after an interesting weekend. Our first night in Portland Eden threw up, the next day Tyler, then Meg, Dan, Jenna and I proceeded to be sick. It seems it was the 24 hour something. Not quite how we intended to spend the weekend :) The kids dragged themselves to the wedding activities they were attending and slept, watched babies and movies till we recouped. Sunday morning we headed out to the Portland zoo, and were finally able to have some fun together. It was a perfect day in Portland, sunny but not to hot.Eden's rented zoo stroller was a car, and she was thinking that was pretty cool. It was fun showing Eden all the animals she had learned about. Tikka the elephant was a big hit.
We are here now at Cannon Beach and the weather is perfect. I love this little beach town. It has all the charm and feel of Cape Cod...well as close as I am going to it in the Pacific Northwest. One big difference is that the water is too cold to swim in unless your the polar bear type.
This town is filled with flowers everywhere you go. All the shops are charming and the flowers are tucked in every nook and cranny and down every hidden path or main street. I of coarse enjoy this thoroughly.
Every where there is a shop there is a nice bench for the husbands to sit on while their wives shop and they attend to their blackberries :)
I wish my hydrangea's looked like this
We parked our car at the hotel on the beach and we haven't had to use it since. We are smack dab in the middle of this town. Everything you could want is with in walking distance. Last night we went out to grab a coffee at our favorite coffee shop in town Bella . After an interlude there we stopped and listening to some live music at Pizza a Fetta . Then we strolled to dinner and had fresh grilled blackened halibut...yum! After dinner we grabbed a bottle of wine at the market and a Haagen-Dazs ice cream bar and strolled back along the beach to our hotel while walking into the sunset. Ahh another day tomorrow on the beach and another day in this charming little beach town.
