Vacation Day #2

Our tour through Cannon Beach came to a screeching halt when the kids came upon the pink and white striped storefront of Bruce's Candy Shop. The taffy machine was busy in the window cutting and wrapping chocolate taffy.

Bailey, Tatum, Rikard and Keely were fascinated. We went inside and bought one handful of each flavor available.

We window shopped along with the other tourists and came upon a few stores selling sea shells, t-shirts and other items.

Then, it was off to the beach. On the way there, Rikard fell into an estuary and was soaked up to his armpits. Once at the water's edge, the kids ran in the surf, jumped over the waves and collected their "treasures" (otherwise known as bits of shells.

My dad checked his primary vacation goal off his list and took Sadee for a walk along the beach.
