Megan’s good friend from Alaska (who moved to Tennessee) happened to be at Cannon Beach at the very same time we were driving through. We couldn’t pass up a chance to reconnect and walk on the beach.
We arrived at our first campground–we’re staying in a yurt!–and cooked dinner by headlamp and lantern. A quick game of Settlers of Catan rounded out the night.
