In Cannon Beach, we stayed at e Ocean Lodge, with spacious quarters, a deck overlooking the beach, cozy fireplace, and easy access to the sand. Rates here include a generous continental breakfast, evening wine receptions, nightcaps delivered to each room, and the use of beach chairs, blankets, and towels.

In addition, Travel Buddy liked his crab mac n' cheese at Wayfarer Restaurant and I loved my pepperoni and black olive pizza from Surfcrest Market. I relished the ways that the Oregon coast is different from home: exotic bridges, world-class tide pools, basalt hay stacks, and — most of all — gorgeous puffins with distinctive orange beaks.
