The sad truth is that I almost missed this beautiful adventure. In August I ended up with two compression fractures in my spine. By October I was beginning to feel better but still having painful issues from the injury. Instead of letting it stop me, as I often do, I made my mind up that no matter what happens to my body because of my disease, I'm going to get out there and LIVE LIFE LARGE regardless of my circumstances. I'm so glad I did!
One of my favorite towns on the Oregon Coast is Cannon Beach. Their quaint shops, Haystack Rock, and the sound of the ocean draw me in.....always. They also have the cutest library sign :)
A great thing for me is that when vacationing on the coast it is pretty easy to find Omega 3 food. Thank you Tom's Fish and Chips for these Fish Tacos. They were the best!
One day my husband and I took off on our own to enjoy whatever we might find along US 101. When we hit Rockaway Beach we smelled amazing smoky scents that brought us to a screeching halt. Seriously!
This family owned smokehouse did not disappoint. Delicious smoked salmon was a hit all weekend.
We stopped for a hug at Hug Point!
My romantic husband took advantage of the secluded beach and carved out some true beauty in the sand.
Of course, this is my favorite way to end the day at the coast. I'm so thankful that I chose to overcome and receive the blessing of a wonderful and memorable weekend with people I love :)
