otherwise known as… Parley Cove ;)
My husband and I travel to Cannon Beach every year, and I have been going since I was 16. I’ve always wished I could see a pirate ship sailing through the waters there…or anchored just off shore. And now, I have! ;)

Oooh, I’ve been there once only, is that Haystack Rock? This is perfect, and I didn’t know about the pirates! Arrrrrr! (first comment dance)
That is indeed Haystack Rock! That place is a real touchstone for my creativity. In fact, I think I could safely say it sparked the wildfire of my imagination the first time I ever set foot on that beach at 16 years old. Been back at least once a year, if not more…every year since then. Even honeymooned there! It is such a magical spot… there is a very tangible ‘feeling’ there whenever I go. I’ve never felt it anywhere else.
Now I shall go look for peglegs washed up on the beach. LOL
This is wonderful. I like your imagination and how you are able to create from it. I love this!
Thank you Judi!!
Just a perfect setting for pirates now that you mention it! I love it there. Lived nearby for many years and visit every summer. I’ll be looking for the wreck of that ship next year!
Oh how wonderful that you were able to live near there!! It is a five hour drive for me…though that doesn’t seem far, I’m used to it now. lol My brother lives in Tillamook – and my sister lives in Tualatin, so we have lots of reasons to head down that way throughout the year.
I can just imagine pirates sailing in there, and being spied on from Ecola park. :D
hugs Thank you!
this is just lovely ….very dreamy…glad your dream of having pirates just off shore is finally a reality…what a wonder the imagination put to work with art is…BRAVO!!
Heheh, thank you Tammera!!

Aimee, I really love the way you do your stuff. So nostalgic and colorful. Your art just sucks me in and I don’t even want to leave.Nice work!
Billy, that is such a cool thing to hear!! Thank you so much!
ah….i so love what you’ve done here! It’s a magical place!
Thank you Karin!! Cannon Beach is such a magical place – it makes it easy to create artwork there!
Thank you Linda!
A beautiful image and I love your flights of fancy. I, also love Cannon beach and the Oregon coast. My very favorite place is Nye Beach and would simply love to retire there.
Ohhh Nye Beach is beautiful! Every stop along that stretch of the coast is just so gorgeous. Once a few months have gone by, I literally yearn to get back there. People wonder why my hubby and I go back year after year… but they just don’t understand how truly wonderful it is. It would be such a dream to wind up there some day!
Thank you for the lovely compliments!!
