Dragonfire Art Gallery is such a special place to go while you are visiting Cannon Beach. This weekend we attended an event to honor The Year of The Rabbit. There was live music, saki, wine, wonderful appetizers and, of course, art work galore featuring rabbits. We found out what our signs were and received fortunes. Also we individually were read to about our sign. I am a fire boar...which really turns out to be pretty cool. Tommy was a water horse and that was too. Eeva and Marcia, pictured below, have a special way of combining learning with enjoyment of the arts...kudos. We (0 comments)
It is amazing the amount of work one has to go to make repairs in the winter time at the beach! The top picture is of Breakers Point in the north end of Cannon Beach. The complex has been here since the 1980's and is oceanfront. It is time for a facelift. The windows and siding are being replaced. Most of the owners have been there since the inception. The CC&R's do not allow nightly or even monthly rentals. You need to rent for at least two months at a time. It is a very quiet place to stay. The (0 comments)
Enjoy a workout on Tillamook Head - 02/22/11 08:12 PM
There is a terrific seven mile hike from Seaside to Cannon Beach over Tillamook Head. This time of year the old timers remember a run called the "Terrible Tilly Run" where you were knee deep in mud through some of it. That run gave participants bragging rights. Now most hikers wait until the trail has dried up a bit so that it is a more enjoyable experience. This land was a gift from the Elmer Feldenheimer Family for a Forest Preserve for everyone's to enjoyment. You feel as if you are on top of the world during most of the walk. The ocean view is (0 comments)
Gate whimsy in Seaside - 02/22/11 07:49 PM
One of my favorite homes in the south part of Seaside has taken gate design to another level. My friend, Patty, collects all these interesting objects and puts them together to make the most interesting pieces of art........ from gates, to curtains, room dividers and lamps. It takes a certain kind of mind to puzzle through and come up with a work of art that speaks to you..This piece is made for the outdoors and is useful, too. Everytime you open the gate it makes one smile. Doesn't it make you want to put all your favorite objects together and create? (4 comments)
When real estate creates friendships - 02/19/11 07:18 PM
I have some dear friends who had a relative looking for a beach house that had to be near them. Elaine and I combed the area for a house that would be just right for her as a home to make memories for years to come. We looked and looked until we found the right one. She loved it from the moment that she saw it. The home wrapped itself around you...just right if you came by yourself for a getaway and big enough for those times when the whole family was there. To our surprise when reading the legal description it (1 comments)
Historic opportunity on a sunny day in Seaside - 02/19/11 07:04 PM
On the south end of Seaside, you can wander along Beach Street until you come upon this National Historic Trail marker which guides you along the Lewis and Clark Trail to the salt works. In the winter of 1805 and 1806 Lewis and Clark chose to stay the winter in this area of Oregon instead of the Washington side. They came to this very spot to make salt from the sea water to preserve game and fish meats. They write in their journal about using this method for whale. It's such a pretty day...if you are in the area stop by to enjoy one of the spectacular historic pieces of Seaside. (2 comments)
Sometimes we just have to play! - 02/14/11 07:45 PM
The Oregon Symphony just takes you to another place in your mind. We have had tickets for the last 20 years and it's just something you have to do for yourself. Last Monday's performance was exceptional. It was Sergei Rachmaninoff 's Concerto No. 3 in D minor for Piano and Orchestra. The pianist was 23 year old Yuja Wang from China. She had an astounding command of the piano...her fingers just flew. For more information about her you could go to yujawang.com It was a perfect evening.
Saturday evening we attended a Town Hall Meeting at the Warrenton Grade School. It was well attended with at least 60 residents. State Representative Deborah Boone and State Representative Brad Witt were present and invited to speak when questions about education in Oregon were brought up. Katherine Carey, Warrenton Grade School Student President, took the first question for the senator. "How will you improve our education system?" He took time answering her question and summed it up by saying, "The nations that are the best educated are going to be the most productive. We need to think long term as well as short (0 comments)
Tufted Puffins are almost here! - 02/04/11 06:06 PM
Have you ever seen a Tufted Puffin? Well, if you haven't you should plan on making a trip to Cannon Beach's Haystack Rock a National Bird Sanctuary. Puffins are dear to our community. Last year around mid April the school children gathered to welcome the puffins home as part of the Earth Day Celebration. Last evening I attended the second of four part lecture series held by The Cannon Beach Library and last night with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program HRAP. It was free and very well attended and enjoyed by all. The topic was "Tufted Puffin Monitoring" put on by Shawn Stephenson who is a wildlife biologist for the (0 comments)
