cannon beach, oregon part 1




Every moment before this one depends on this one.
~Jonathan Safran Foer

I love a good surprise and this was a wonderful one from J. to visit Cannon Beach for my birthday.  The weather was very kind to us and the waves had an ethereal beauty as the light played with the constant motion.  I am still smiling thinking about this day.  More photos to come...
