8-17-2013 Haystack Rock & Cannon Beach, OR

Eric packed for our day trip while Cara & Lindsey met another of Lindsey's friends for a nice breakfast at The Waffle Window on NE Alberta.  Everybody loved their waffles, and it was a hearty start for the day.
Cara's Bananarumba waffle
Lindsey's Berry Bliss waffle
Lindsey is a huge fan of the movie "Goonies", which features Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, OR, and she really wanted to see it.  So, we hopped in the car and drove out to the coast.  We got to Cannon Beach around lunch time, so we walked the town a little and decided to eat at Sweet Basil Cafe.  We sat outside and had a nice lunch, then headed to the beach.  We enjoyed a nice long walk to Haystack Rock, where we found loads of wonderful tide pool creatures to check out.

Later Eric napped on the beach (nice except for a few flies that would leave him alone) while Cara and Lindsey walked the little tourist town's main street and visited several shops looking for souvenirs.  When Eric awoke we all headed back home, then walked up to Bollywood Theater on NE Alberta for dinner.
Samosa Chole
Kati Roll w/Paneer Cheese - yummy!
Dahi Papri Chaat ("Indian Nachos") - delicious!
