Patrick and I decided to take a last minute trip down to lovely Cannon Beach, Oregon last weekend. We're so glad we went! I think it was my favorite weekend of 2012 so far. We stayed in a little "Lighthouse" room with a large deck at The Waves Hotel (highly recommend!) and enjoyed the weekend walking and jogging on the beach, eating delicious seafood (see recommendations below), browsing the tiny art galleries and boutique stores, and soaking up some Vitamin D. We also had the pleasure of seeing "Butterflies are Free" performed at the little, wooden Coaster Theatre on the main street in CB.

Cannon Beach is a foodie's paradise, some of our particular favorites were: local Sleeping Monk Coffee at the newly opened Insomnia Coffee House, halibut and pints at The Irish Table Restaurant (see pics below...mmmm, brings me back to Dublin), white wine and fried oysters on the deck at the The Driftwood Restaurant, herbed creme cheese and smoked salmon omelets for brunch at Lazy Susan's, buttered pecan caramel ice cream at Osborn's Cremery, and of course tons of salt-water taffy!
