Anyone who's been there knows it is home to this famous monolith, Haystack Rock.
As far as weather, it is not my normal cup of tea.
And yet, this resort beckons me back time and again.
Perhaps it is the rugged landscape.
The wildlife is interesting. Seagulls were chasing an invading Puffin.
(Oh there once was a puffin just the shape of a muffin... Anyone know that poem?)
Maybe it is the fact that everyone lets go of their cares when they are on the beach.
It could be the peaceful evenings.
I did thoroughly enjoy the beach bonfires. We cooked hot dogs and smores. When it began to mist the kids and my Dad went inside but I couldn't force myself to leave. As it turned out the mist only lasted a few minutes so I was able to sit out for quite awhile. It was so peaceful.
I think it is all this and more. For me, Cannon Beach holds some sort of mystique which I have never experienced anyplace else. My time there definitely calmed my soul.
