Once upon a time there was a family who planned a wonderful trip to Cannon Beach. The family had grown and so two vehicles were needed to transport them to this lovely land with flowing waters. The elders chose to ride a two wheeled vehicle with air flowing freely. Looking at the blue skies and open road beckoning, they zipped up their jacket and rode off. Little did these two know that within thirty minutes the damsel would be in distress, knees knocking and teeth chattering. After a break to hug on the side of the road, warming up the bones as best as possible, the two continued towards the flowing waters. So their journey doesn't include amazing beach pictures or even the coffee stop that was justified to increase their internal temperature. No, this time the photos are of their family enjoying the warmth of the sun and the coolness of the ocean; sinking their toes in the sand.

T and I made it in time to catch a few minutes on the beach and a few pictures with the children. I love these five. Seriously, nothing better than walking up on a beach to see your children exploring together.
We ended our adventure to the flowing waters eating at a beach side restaurant while watching the waves roll in. Clam chowder, deep fried clams, and cod. Delicious.
The two wheeled vehicle went home one less passenger.
