Ringin’ in the New Year – Coastal Style

After a couple of seriously jet lagged days upon our return from Australia, we rented a car and drove over to Cannon Beach to ring in 2014 in a very chill way.  Oceanfront suite at the Hallmark Resort on Cannon Beach? Check. Complete lack of rain and fairly mild weather for winter at the coast? Check.  Lovely romantic dinner at Newmans at 988, complete with wine, lobster ravioli, pots de creme, and tawny port? Check.  Gorgeous starry sky with the pounding of waves and a roaring fire to keep us warm? Check.  Friends to boogie with us in our room as we did the countdown to the new year? Check.  Awesome coffee and cardamom cinnamon rolls at Bread and Ocean in Manzanita for New Years Day breakfast the next morning? Check.  Ready to begin the year in a way that is true to myself, my heart, my soul, my partner, and my where I want to be in my life? Check check check check CHECK!!!!

Have been coming here all my life but usually stay in nearby towns.  With Haystack Rock right outside our balcony this time, we got to see it in many forms, including in the gorgeous fog...
