a few weeks ago, right when i flew back from new zealand and before i boarded the boat, i rented a car and drove from seattle to portland. and then i got bored, so i went out to cannon beach. it was on a recommendation from a friend, and he was so right. it was such a cute little town, and i loved being there. while i don't think i would want to live permanently in a town like that, i could see myself with a cute little cottage for a week or two each year.
