Quirky Cannon Beach

These are some pictures that I took while in Cannon Beach. I thought they portray the perfect beach mentality - we'll get to it when we can.


We saw SO many signs that said something along this line. And every single time it cracked me up!!



Grace & I saw this on the last night that we spent in Cannon Beach. It was too funny (and true) to pass up taking a picture of.


*In case you're unable to read all of it, it says:


Bathroom: 1000 feet from Info. Center!


Beach: Stop when hat is floating!


And the last line: NO we don't know when the rain will start or stop!



This last picture has to be the most interesting. Not sure if you can make them out that clearly but there are two baggies filled with water that are hung at the top of the door. Does anyone have any idea why they are there? They were hung from MANY of the businesses in the area. (I do know the reason, which I'll post later, I'm just curious what everyone else thinks.)


*Anyone that was with me on the trip - no spilling the beans!!! Hahahaha*

I wonder how long it will take people to figure it out! :-) No it is not a trick to hit the 100th person to enter the store!

Happy (belated) Birthday, Logan!!!!!!

Ok, I was stumped, so I turned to Google for help ('baggie water door'). Interesting. Ever hung your own baggie?

I hope you're all doing well and enjoying your summer. How's the new job?

Interesting... Never heard of that before!!

I hope you are doing well! Sounds like you are having lots of fun in Maine. That's one place I'd like to visit someday. Well, anyplace on the east coast. Never been to that side of the country before! LOL.

Take care and have fun!!!

I might have to Google this too, but my official guess has something to do with mosquitos or other bugs? I'm thinking the water attracts them (maybe it's actually sugar water?) and keeps them from getting into the building. Or something. Now I'll Google it. LOVED the signs!!! (left a msg for logan on bday blog)
