One of our first meals was at Morris’ Fireside Restaurant, the service was a little slow since it was a very busy weekend with all of the people flooding to the coast for the warm weather, but that was understandable.

Haystack Rock and The Needles at Cannon Beach, Oregon

I was visiting family and friends in Portland, Oregon and my two aunts and I spent a few days at a rental house in Cannon Beach and the weather last week was unusually high, the temperature was in the 80s. There were a lot of people on the rocks and tide pools around Haystack Rock at low tide looking for starfish, sea urchins and sea anemones. They were all out to enjoy the great weather at the beach. Some of them stayed and made fires on the beach to enjoy the sunset.

Portland at night, Oregon

Portland at night

Portland, Oregon at night from across the Willamette River. There are walking paths along each side of the river. Portland is a very unique city in the Pacific Northwest with a mild, rain forest type climate where it rains most of the winter – making it a very green area. Mount Hood and the Oregon Coast are both about an hour away from Portland, in opposite directions. Perfect location if you want to go hiking one weekend and deep sea fishing the next.
