Trip Report Cannon Beach Day Trip

Jump to last reply

We have been in the PNW several days now, we spent two nights in Seattle at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel and are now in Seaside at our beach cottage for awhile. Yesterday we ventured out to the beautiful Cannon Beach area where we visited the bakery for some goodies and then went to Ecola State Park and took in the beautiful views of Haystack Rock and Tillamook Lighthouse. We also enjoyed strolling the town visiting the art galleries.

Cannon Beach is a lovely area of the Oregon Coast to spend time in, the Wayfarer is offering Copper River Salmon for a few more days, we dined there a couple of nights ago and had the Salmon topped with Goat Cheese which was wonderful.

Today after surfing in Seaside we spent the day in Astoria, we had appetizers at the Bridgewater Bistro and took in the gorgeous weather, out on the deck. We drove up to the top of Coxcomb Hill, they are renovating the Column and the top is off right now. We also stopped by the Commodore Hotel for a tour, it is the newest addition to the Astoria lodging scene and is very, very pretty!

On our way back to our beach cottage we stopped by the Paciifc Way Bakery and Cafe for some yummy Crab and Feta pizza and earlier in the day we enjoyed sitting out in the garden at Pop's Sweet Shop where we bought some Chocolate Fudge.

We are having a wonderful time in the PNW, the weather has been gorgeous for us! :)
