i spent the day exploring the oregon coast. i could've stayed here for weeks or months.. there were so many beautiful overlooks to be seen and places to wander on the coast. i flew my kite at cannon beach and shortly after it was in the air, it went crashing into the ocean. thankfully, i had the waterproof gopro on it and not another camera. i fished the kite out of the waves and water (which was a good bit of effort if i recall), and i took it to a local kite shop to be sewn back up where the spar had poked through. i remember the guy there told a story of how his car broke down at cannon beach and he took that as a sign of where he should stay (when he was wandering without destination). later in the afternoon, on my way toward the next campground, i found a spot where i decided to record the waves coming in for a while. it was so nice to be by the water in someplace beautiful. i got to the campground, and was able to walk across the road from there right to the beach.. i watched the sun set and saw a winding path that you could take to drive down to the beach. either that evening or the next morning i decided i'd take it the next day.
