Destination: HUG POINT, Oregon

Hurray for Summer break! We finally get to go places during the week to avoid weekend crowds. We plan to go camping often and explore the coast a little more this Summer. The hubby has been watching 'Oregon Revealed: Coastal Wonder' & the "Oregon Field Guide' and he's been dreaming up an 'Oregon exploration' list for our family.

This week we got to check out Hug Point which is 5 miles South of Cannon Beach. Such a neat spot. We were there all day and enjoyed exploring the beautiful sandy beach, the seasonal waterfall, caves carved into sandstone cliffs, tide pools and so much more. 

The first thing these boys wanted to do as soon as we got there was to go exploring and to scout out a nice spot on the beach for our picnic.

We got there at low tide so we were able to go check out the tide pools... Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved! Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

Yoda likes to lead but he will not leave anyone in the group behind either. He'll stop & wait for you until he can see you...& then he'll go back to leading. I always know I'm taking my own sweet time when the Corgi lifts up his little paw & gives me this "please hurry mom, let's go already!" look!

I'm always lagging behind and Yoda is always there waiting for me...reminding me to keep up with the group. He also loves to participate in every activity, especially if Evan is involved. I love this dog!

You'd think with his short legs he would not be able to run as fast as other dogs or climb rocky hills. But he can. Look at him go!

At the top of this little cliff we found this...

Evan's favorite spot was right here, at the top. A look through spot where you could see the other side of the cliff.  Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

& then the descent. Evan is adventurous but also cautious. I love and appreciate that about him.  Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

After an hour or so exploring and with the tiding coming in we decided to head back and find a spot on the beach. Yoda did not like the cold water and he got stuck on a rock trying to avoid the waves. Scott had to go rescue him.  Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

Then it was time for some fun on the beach. 

Sand castles to be built...

Scott attempted to fly his first kite but it wasn't windy enough.

Evan & Yoda wanted to play frisbee. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

Yoda was too excited & couldn't wait. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

But, for this Corgi, the problem with playing frisbee on the beach is all that SAND. Yoda does not want to get sand in his mouth. So when the frisbee lands like this he tries to dig around it to flip it with his nose.  Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

Success! Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

I ended up playing frisbee with Yoda while Evan pretended to be a great warrior....he had found himself a big stick. Scott was still attempting to fly his kite.

Evan had plans to go swimming in the ocean. He came prepared. But, like Yoda, he found the water too cold as well.  Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

So he spent time standing on his board, waiting for the waves to 'get him' instead. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

Then daddy buried Evan in the sand. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

& they built a fort together. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

& then Evan, Yoda & I combed the beach for "treasures". Evan found a dead crab. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

It may seem like I'm only there taking photos but I'm not. I get to do other fun stuff with my family too. Scott took this. Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!Copyright © 2016 NekoSam Images; All Rights Reserved!

 

It was a perfect day.
