We chose to stop at Cannon Beach because of Lazy Susan. We read rave reviews about the breakfasts at Lazy Susan, and now we’re big fans, too. Only after breakfast could we think of heading for the beach.
We checked in at Otter Crest, and, of course, headed straight for the beach.
We continued our walk down the beach until we came to a high rock wall that jutted into the ocean. The rock wall appeared to end the beach until we saw a cave-like entrance. The tide was going out so we scrambled over the rocks and entered.
Back on the beach, we discovered a path cutting up through the high rock wall to the top. We came to a road that led to a lookout with a great view.
Beaches are open to public use in Oregon, so we might have guessed they’d be crowded, littered, and not well maintained. We visited about half dozen beaches, and all were outstanding – none of those anticipated problems. Only one problem we could see. The water is really, really cold.
