Cannon Beach, Oregon

Even though we are staying in Long Beach, Washington now, we had to go back and revisit Cannon Beach again.  It is just a terrific place to visit and enjoy.  

After we finally found a good place to park our truck we wandered downtown a bit.  We stopped in a couple of shops and ate lunch at Bella Espresso Cafe.  It is a quaint little place that is kind of off the main drag.  Later on we really blew it and stopped at the Creperie. We had a Strawberry, Banana and Nutella Crepe with ice cream and whipped cream.  It is called the Crepe Neptune.  We shared it so I wasn't real bad.  It was delicious, however, I'd rather they serve it on a plate than in a cone-shaped crepe.

The hydrangeas around town are so gorgeous!

Tufted Puffins

And we are off to the beach.  We had forgotten how we got down to the beach so that took us awhile. We finally figured it out.

Little Stint - These guys were really small about 3".  Very cute!

You can tell how small these birds are 
compared to the seagull in front!

The sun wasn't too good for these pictures of 
us but they'll have to do!

We are in front of a what they call the Marine Gardens



The light reddish brown is a Star Fish

When the tide comes in this area is completely covered with water.

A couple of jelly fish didn't make it back when the tide went out

Lee took this picture and he didn't even realize that he had the surfer in it.

The sky was so beautiful today.

Love this picture of the beach by Haystack Rock
