Cannon Beach

1700 miles later, and I'm finally back home.  There was very little photography on this trip, mainly just driving and getting my son moved home for the summer.  I did one quick side trip to Cannon Beach in Oregon.  This is somewhere I've been wanting to go for a while.  The thing that distinguishes Cannon Beach from other nearby towns is the rock formations just off the shore.  The most famous one is haystack rock which is way in the background in this photo.  Funny how having a few rocks on your beach can turn your little town into a posh travel destination!  I actually felt a little sorry for the neighboring  towns, all bare-beached and ordinary. On a side note, I have to say I'm thoroughly out of the photo mood right now.  I think it's because I'm so tired from all the travel.

You can see and photograph so beautifully--it just takes my breath away. I've enjoyed catching up on posts since the green LaSalle. Glad you're home and beginning to get some rest, I trust.

Love this classic point of view of the famous beach. Good choice driving up to this overlook... what a great visita!
