There was this great big sand hill that Benson and the kids climbed up. It was interesting to watch the people that this hill intrigued. It attracted the old, the young, and everyone in between. People would run down it and fall and roll part of the way. Jeremy's approach was just to roll! He had sand everywhere when he was finally all the way down. They had a lot of fun.
When we were done in Pacific City we drove north. It was starting to get cold, cloudy, and windy. We saw these sun spots coming through the clouds. It was awesome!!!
A couple of months ago the coast had a really strong storm blow through. There were 100+ MPH winds and lots of flooding. A lot of trees were uprooted and blown over. In fact, the tallest Sitka Spruce tree, which once stood near HWY 26 was blown over. I know what you are thinking, we too are still asking ourselves why God lets bad things happen to good trees. Anyway, this is a wheelchair ramp that leads from the parking lot at Cannon Beach to the sand. I know...a wheelchair ramp to the sand? It was actually really cool to see all of the driftwood that had been trapped in the ramp and had not been cleaned up yet. (In case you couldn't tell, Benson wrote this section)
It was a really fun trip to the coast, and we really enjoyed each other's company!!
