It was barely Monday before we were already thinking about adventures for the upcoming weekend. We checked the weather forecast for our usual haunts (Portland, the coast, Hood River) but couldn’t find any ideal weather. We decided to look in another direction and ended up deciding that we would spend the weekend in Bend.

Tulip Festival

As usual, Zeke woke us up nice and early on Saturday morning. The weather forecast was predicting rain, but it hadn’t started yet and since we were up anyway, I suggested we head down to the waterfront for a walk. We’ve never been down there so early and it was nice because it wasn’t as busy as usual.

Cannon Beach

I finally went to Cannon Beach! I’ve been wanting to go for years and Gagan and I even made a trip up along the coast last summer, but unfortunately we didn’t hit Cannon Beach. Last week, I just randomly decided to look up what the weather would be at the beach. Yes, I know it’s mid-January, but I have a need to be outside regardless of the weather. Surprisingly, it was actually going to be warm so I pitched the idea to Gagan. Turns out Cannon beach is only an hour and a half away from us so we decided to go for it. And oh man, am I ever glad we did. It was a glorious day!
