Cannon Beach

Jordan decided that we should go to Tillamook during our last summer weekend. As we'd already been to Tillamook, TLC decided that we should also pass by Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach to try something new.

And here it is...picturesque Haystack Rock. Wikipedia tells me that Haystack Rock is the third tallest intertidal structure in the idea what the first two are. Wiki also tells me that the rock is in the movies The Goonies, Kindergarten Cop, and 1941. I think this was the only time we've been to the coast when there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I couldn't ask for a better day.

Carter is finally getting over his fear of the ocean and I think it's largely due to that blue shovel he's holding. He would play in the water for hours with that thing.

Pretty waves, no?

We also found a jellyfish on the beach! Prodding it with just flip-flops on made me a bit nervous. I still remember the horror story my Mom told me of when she was stung by a jelly.

This has to be the happiest I've seen TLC at the beach. It was a great, great day. I admit though that Davis didn't have a grand time. I stuck his feet in the ocean for the very first time and he was NOT pleased.


  1. i have no idea what an intertidal structure is but it kind of looks like the big rock at morrow bay...i'd bet that's one of the first two.

  2. Nevermind. It's a volcanic plug. Could I leave any more posts on here??

  3. I love seeing your posts about places you go. These are beautiful photos (I am an avid beach lover myself!) And I agree, this place reminds me of Morrow Bay!

    P.S. I don't know why I can't post a comment under my Google Account anymore. This is from Elaine :-)

  4. BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks for sharing!
