Day 3: Haystack Rock and Ecola State Park

Cannon Beach RV Resort is a cross between a campsite and RV park.  One very delightful characteristic is  - - this park is blessedly quiet. It is set back off the highway and attracts the senior RV crowd.  As darkness falls everyone scurries into their rigs and silence reigns. 

We are out for a morning stroll. 

Costco quiche and frozen hash. Easy meals.

With the election looming in the States we were surprised at how few election signs we have seen. We could not miss this Trump sticker though. 

We strolled all the way down to the south end of the beach to check out Mo's Seafood Restaurant. Yes, it is still there. We will be back for lunch tomorrow. 

Crab for lunch. This Seagull tugged the still living crab out of the sand in the surf, flipped it over and proceeded to peck the belly open.  Ah, yuck. Happy crab lunch there Mr. Seagull. 

Lunch time in the sun. 

Time for me to do some marking!
In the late afternoon we head slightly north to Ecola State Park and Indian Beach.  The access road is a very narrow paved road that twists and turns for over a mile in dense forest.  It was an adventure but what a prize!  Indian Beach is a secluded piece of heaven.  The tide was going out which was nice for us but not so nice for the surfers as the waves were beginning to diminish.  We strolled 10 minutes down to the end of the beach to check out the rocks covered with various barnacles and sea anemones. 

In the far distance can be seen Sea Lion Arch Rock.
