I'm grateful to have always lived near an ocean. I was drawn toward iconic Haystack Rock because the way it dominates the horizon.
One of Ryan and I's first weekend road trips as a married couple was to Cannon Beach and Astoria in 2016. We grabbed some food at Moe's, admired the view of Haystack, checked out the galleries and grabbed ice cream. After that we made our way up the coast to Astoria! The town has such charm. We visited the Flavel house, enjoyed some food at a local brewery and found a cool illustration for our gallery wall while visiting the Saturday market. I love the ocean, my mind is always filled with peace and contemplation when I visit.
