Since we had our family Christmas early this year, Steve and I decided to stay at the beach over Christmas. We found a cabin in a nice area called Falcon Cove, between Cannon Beach and Manzanita. Our little Izzi thought that was a grand plan too, she loves to run on the beach.
We were very lucky with the weather on Christmas Eve. It was cold, but dry and was perfect for taking Izzi to the beach. On the way home, we stopped at a rest area near the summit of the Coast Range that had about a foot of snow, so we let Izzi out to play and it gave me some good photo opportunities too.
