I just wanted to thank everyone for their comments on my previous entry. I just got back from a few days away from computers, email, the Internet, and all of the fun stuff. I spent a few days in Cannon Beach, OR... It's an amazing beach, esp. for those of us who are used to beaches on Fire Island, NY. Seems to me as if this is the beach that was used in the movie "The Goonies" from 1985 (one of my favorite childhood movies). It's a highly recommended visit in the summer if you like the whole beach thing. Great beach for taking long walks on or riding a bicycle on, but be prepared to bring a wind breaker with you.
