Blue is a pleasant beach color, but green isn't too shabby either.
I have been lucky to have had some pleasant trips to the coast this past year. This is from one we made back in May. More and more, that northern section of Cannon Beach is becoming my favorite stop along that particular stretch of coast. Lots of beach grass to play in, relatively few crowds - even on sunny days, and random strangers willing to share a campfire and marshmallows.
