I haven't been to a game in 6 years..
Lots of fun and an inexpensive evening =)



And It always helps to have good company!

Last week during the low tides I was in Cannon Beach (surprise, surprise lol!)
I was able to walk from Cannon Beach to Indian beach.
It was a great walk, not too many people I know have done it =)
