This summer I had a mini to-do list when it came to activities. I really wanted to spend the day in Seattle and go to Mariner’s game (without Bethel kids) and we were able to accomplish that for our anniversary at the beginning of the month. Visiting the beach was another trip that was top on my list. It’s been a long time tradition to visit the Oregon Coast come summertime, so I was hoping we would get our day at the beach on the calendar! That day turned out to be today! The weather was beautiful, despite it being slightly chilly in the morning. I think Hawaii may have forever tainted my beach experience. There is nothing like Kamaole I at 5:00am with the pink, sunrise sky and the sea turtles popping their heads up off shore. However, even though we didn’t revisit our favorite Hawaiian beach, Cannon Beach is always a popular choice!
We started the morning off with a stop by The Cannon Beach Bakery where I got a cinnamon sugar apple cider cake doughnut. That’s a really long name for a super tasty treat! We took the doggie on an adventurous walk for a couple hours and then came back in time for lunch at Mo’s – my favorite beach side eating location. Since we had Toby with us, we got the food to go and ate at a picnic table in the sun! It was glorious! For our way home, we actually went south to Tillamook where we stopped at the Cheese Factory for ice cream cones and squeaky cheese! Then we took Highway 6 out for a scenic drive! It was a great day to hang with my hubby and puppy and just enjoy the summer weather! Since summer is always a busy time for Jeremy and I with work commitments, it’s nice to have special days like these!
What is the next adventure on the traveling to-do list? I think it might be camping in August! Stay tuned!
