Cannon Beach Sand Sculpting Festival 50th Anniversary   This is it! or was 2014 June 21st weekend in Summer that we're all excited for on the Oregon Coast. Heading out early last Saturday to capture the entire day and define our destiny. It's completely worth the time to get over there to Cannon Beach and find parking early. Folks set up lounge chairs, blankets and sunbrellas to protect their space on the beach and sensitive Pacific Northwest skin from the Solstice sun. See flagged photo above...It looks very different in the early morning when markers are put in place and teams gather with supplies to make their creations. Forms are used to collect sand and water which are packed tight to great heights for the forming of the artistic shapes. Elaborate tool kits house sculpting tools an...

Mini vacations can resurrect the spirit and love-of-a-lifetime relationship. It did wonders for ours recently. It was just what the doctor ordered....R&R. Who knew when we decided to take a couple of days to be together in January at Cannon Beach Oregon that we would have near-summer-like temperatures?!   It was heaven. Glowing sunsets, jewel-toned mornings   ...great food, kicking around with the dogs, buying rubbery balls (at Puppy Love Store, a local Cannon Beach dog-friendly store) that don't gather sand or get slimy when chucking them down the beach for our four-leggeds to chase. This was at the suggestion of the employee there who offered great advice and treats for Takoda and Kasa, our Goldens.      You will always find something entertaining at Cannon Beach. We do!  It's only an...

Fishhawk Lake Yesterday Morning at Cannon Beach Fishhawk Lake is always a wonderful place to wake up to, and yet there are those moments when it's good to get away. We woke up to this morning view of Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach yesterday. There was still a half moon lingering way above Haystack Rock. The photographers dotted the beach with their tripods. I just shot around them.   Our little family of four took a couple of well-earned days off and the weather was STUPENDOUS. We felt very blessed to have summerish temperatures in January on the Oregon Coast! (We always have a great time there, and this was no exception. I will be writing a blog about it later.) Have a terrific day no matter what the weather!

The Ocean Makes Me Feel So SmallThe Ocean Makes Me Feel So SmallThe waves coming in relentlesslyThe incredible power that I could do nothing to resist.The sheer expanse as I look out to the end of the horizon, and realize it keeps going and going and going.And I reflect.I want my life to be extraordinary, larger than life, hugely significant. But it seems so ordinary, so underwhelming, so run-of-the-mill.I want to be a world changer. I want thousands of people to thank God for the impact I have had on their life.I feel like a world conformer. Working to pay for bills. Nothing special. No great impact. Few people affected let alone impacted.I want to leave behind a legacy. I want a church full of people at the funeral when I die.Instead I wonder, will I fill a chapel. Will anyone even no...

Cannon Beach Oregon for Labor Day Holiday Cannon Beach Oregon for Labor Day Holiday What better place to spend the Labor Day Holiday than in a little resort town on a fabulous beach? Cannon Beach is a quaint town right on the fabled Oregon coast. We came down Sunday after church and will head back Monday afternoon. A little bit of time soaking up the sun and enjoying the sand and the waves. We have been hanging out all week end with Patti's sister, who came up from Texas to spend some time with family. So today we relax. Enjoy the video as well... View Larger Map

I have been thinking about this topic lately and here is the conclusion I have come up with.  Lets start with what is not important in a listing agent. 1. They don't need 50 designations behind their name to make them a good listing agent 2. They don't need lots of experience listing. They need lots of experience getting their listings sold. 3. They don't have to work with a firm that has a Recognizable name. In my opinion, here are the six most critical things you need to ask a listing agent if her or she does in their service to you. 1. The listing agent you hire needs to know how to do a CMA and adjust for every comparable that they use. Simply put, it is important to compare apples to apples.  There are several adjustments to take into consideration. Size of home, condition of home,...

In Cannon Beach, Oregon our market has of course felt the downturn based upon what is/has happened locally and the Real Estate Market in general. Interestingly enough, we were the one of the last areas in the Country to feel the effects of the market downturn. I think there are two reasons for this. 1. Our market is largely a second home community being located in Clatsop County right by the beautiful North Oregon Coast. 2. We are basically built out. The first thing I learned in Real Estate was the concept of supply and demand. That was over 35 years ago and the rule hasn't changed. More supply with less demand makes it a Buyers market. More demand with less supply makes it a sellers market. So, how do you get the best deal in today's market at the Coast? 1. This is obvious and the new...

Every time I visit the Oregon coast a trip to Mo's for at least one meal is a must.  This vacation was no exception.  On our drive from Cannon Beach south to Manzanita where we are staying, you pass a Mo's restaurant overlooking the beach and easy to spot from highway 101. Mo's is a favorite haunt of most anyone visiting the area.  Fortunately for us fans it doesn't matter where you are staying on the Oregon coast, there will be a Mo's somewhere close by. Be prepared for a line but don't let it deceive you.  They seem to move people through pretty quickly.  The day my husband and I went it looked as though we could be waiting awhile (something my husband hates) but were actually seated within about 10 - 15 minutes.  They are famous for their clam chowder but have a wonderful menu with m...

I grew up in Seattle.  But when mom and dad planned our summer vacations, most years this meant heading to the Oregon coast.  My mom and dad are gone now but I still find myself wanting to head to Oregon.  Most years my aunt and uncle from Pennsylvania rent a home somewhere on the coast.  This year it's a 4 bedroom home in Manzanita and my husband Rick and were invited to join them. I'll be posting highlights of my trip in the next few days.  Manzanita is a darling little town just south of Cannon Beach.   The first morning here we headed up to Cannon Beach.  Cannon Beach is a favorite with many Oregonians and out of staters alike.  The shops are first class and the beaches are fabulous.  But this post is about catching the low tide at Haystack Rock (pictured at top).         In all the...
