Yeah- Fog- that's exactly what we had at Cannon beach exactly a year ago! And just like then, it's 98 degrees in Portland! The Fog was so thick you could not see more than 6 feet in front of you! Try looking at Haystack rock in that! Are you going into Portland? My brother lives on the cliff above the road into the city from the beach. They have a perfect view of the city and Mt.Hood. You should stop by to see them. Steve , Trink and Erin Easterday. 1750 SW Vista 97201. Enjoy Cannon Beach!

Hey there, Everyone needs a little rain and fog. Just gorgeous pictures. We don't need jackets here, as we climb back into the 90's, so you see that cloud and fog look nice an cool and make us jealous.

Nice Lighthouse but you are still getting those people in your pictures. Are they following you?

Thanks for all the updates and photos. Sorry to hear about your "POOR" weather. Actually, those temps sound pretty good since we are sweltering here in FL.

Water looks too cold
Hi Justin, I can't believe you waded in the Pacific Ocean. Your feet must have been freezing. Too cold for me. Love and miss you, Mom
