Cannon Beach


Our kids' elementary school had an auction last winter and after a few drinks, my husband decided to bid on a week's stay in Cannon Beach, Oregon. We won, of course. At the time I thought he had spent a little too much on the trip, but now that we've been, I can't help but think that the money was very well spent! I especially enjoyed going to Cannon Beach in September: the weather was still warm, but there were far less people!

Short Sand Beach (Oswald West State Park)


We decided to check out Short Sand Beach on our way to Manzanita, and we're so glad we did!

Short Sand Beach is a secluded little beach a short half mile hike from Highway 101.

Hug Point State Recreation Site


Since we're staying in Cannon Beach for an entire week, we decided to head South and check out some other sights nearby. Our first stop was Hug Point.

Hug Point packs a lot of interesting sights into a short hike. There's a waterfall pouring out onto the beach (although it was pretty small when we were there),
