I’ve started getting into running. Hard to believe as I always swore I was definitely not a runner. Well, things change I suppose. And thanks to my new interest I’m excited to share that this year the Sandcastle Day & Festival has added a new item to the weekend’s activity – a 5k Fun Walk/Run. It’s just $10 to participate. I’ll be there and I’d love for you to join me!

Every Spring the members of the Cannon Beach Gallery Group look forward to the weekend when they unveil the newest work by their featured artists.
This has become one of the most anticipated annual arts events in Oregon, because it gives the art lover an opportunity to meet the artists, watch many of them at work, attend the receptions, enjoy a wide variety of food and music…and take in everything this postcard-perfect town, nestled between the wild Pacific Ocean and the coastal mountains, has to offer.
Chefs from designated Cannon Beach restaurants have been inspired to create a special “Spring Unveiling” weekend addition to their menu, based upon a work of art they have selected from our galleries. -CB Gallery Group
We anticipate this event every year and can’t wait for May to arrive. Won’t you join us? Hope to see you there! May 4, 5 & 6 2012

Mike and the girls participated in this year’s SOLVE Spring Oregon Beach Clean Up. It was pouring down rain but that’s just a fun excuse to put our rain gear to good use, right? Lots of people showed up, everyone picked up tons of garbage and the girls came home soaked but happy to participate. And guess what? The sun came out as soon as everyone got home – a well-earned “thank you” from the Sun himself!
We appreciate being a part of a community that cares so much about our environment. I feel challenged to become more aware of my surroundings and am inspired to do my part in honoring this beautiful location we live in. I won’t just wait for the SOLVE Clean Up event but will start practicing good stewardship every time we walk to the beach. A garbage bag is something I should carry around with me all the time.
Thanks to everyone who showed up and participated this year!
