The family of Bill and Casey Eckles gathered in Cannon Beach, OR in the summer of 2009 - Ocean, mountains, beach, flowers, etc

We try to switch coasts to make it fair for everyone, and Rebecca suggested Cannon Beach in Oregon.  She did a recon and it was good, so tried something new.  It was wonderful.  The beach was wide and flat with interesting rocks and tidal pools.  The water was too cold to swim in without a wet suit, so the kids got wet suits. The town was small and fun with cool shops and amazing flowers.  The hiking along the coast was beautiful and good exercise wit hall the mountains.

We rented three house on this street

This was a great house with a huge deck.  The third house was not as good, just a place to sleep

Mom and Dad stayed in this one at the top of the street
