The REAL west coast

Last weekend we finally used a free car rental (which Brian won) to travel out to the coast. It was the first time since we moved to Portland that we got to see the ocean. We spent all day at beautiful Cannon Beach....which is apparently only 1:45 away from our apartment.

Here is Haystack rock up close and personal. It's huge.

We got to the beach early and here Brian is looking hard for sand dollars.

After the long search, Renee guards the treasure. Renee found 6, Brian.........2. But Brian found the first one.

We met some crazy kids who started pulling live crabs straight out of the ocean.

Renee, making sure they don't get wet.

The kids also found a pair of these little guys. They kinda looked like spiders.

Here's papa crab.

Apparently the closer you are to the ground, the more crabs you will find.
