On our way to the coast, we stopped off to see the largest Sitka Spruce tree in the United States.

 
John, Bonnie, J.J., Vesper, Justeena, Deena and Michael

 

 
After viewing the tree, we all hopped back in the car and headed on to the beach.  Below the group is pictured on Cannon Beach.  The Pacific ocean provides the backdrop.

To the right, John casts his shadow on the sand.  Haystack rock and a young fellow flying a kite are visible in the background.
