I am sitting here in Canon Beach thinking of you. Been lots of fun so far and so much to see. A pretty drive down to Long Beach,Washington and stayed on the beach with the softest sand, we caught a glimpse the alligator man...went to Astoria and saw the "Goonie House" and the school from Kindegarten Cop. You should hear the sea lions..they are so loud, like dogs barking. The recession must have hit hard here because there was a lot of empty store fronts in Astoria. It's sad to see because it is such a beautiful city. I am off to explore Canon Beach today and do some retail theraphy. The weather is good except this morning seems a rather blustery day. But that wont stop us. I'll keep you updated on all our adventures.
