Our 5-day trip down to Cannon Beach started out in Vancouver, BC. The first day of our trip consisted of a few hours of driving and a tour of the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington. For anybody travelling in the area, it is well worth the trip. It was amazing to see how something of such large scale is put together.
Driving down the Washington and Oregon coast was absolutely stunning. The views from the cliffs looking down on the coastline was a sight to remember. We stopped off at the Tillamook Cheese Factory in Tillamook, OR. We enjoyed the tour, along with some tasty souvenirs for the road!
The highlight of the trip was most definitely Cannon Beach, OR. The views, the sand, and the town all made for an enjoyable couple of days. The beach features the famous “Haystack Rock”, which extends over 200 feet above water. What an impressive site! One interesting thing about Cannon beach is you can buy firewood (at least you could during our visit) in the town and make yourself a oceanside campfire!
