Tales of Cannon Beach

I just got back from a delightful visit to Cannon Beach! The last week was spent eating food …

and so much more. I started reading several different books, tho’ haven’t finished any of them. Currently reading Colin Meloy’s Under Wildwood and Lindsey O’Connor’s memoir The Long Awakening, and enjoying both immensely. Under Wildwood has a touch of Mysterious Benedict Society to it – but is darker; The Long Awakening is painfully real, engagingly written, a page-turner.

Other highlights included revisiting some of my favorite haunts (Haystack Rock and Jockey Cap) and restaurants, particularly Pizza a Fetta. Pizza a Fetta is hands down my favorite pizza place … ever. Large portions, whether by the slice or a whole pie; whole pineapple slices on the Hawaiian pies; savory tomato sauce; thick crust that’s been cooked just right – oh, my. Life does not get better than at this restaurant.

I also had the amazing opportunity to attend a fresh-market dinner show at EVOO Cooking School. That deserves an entire post in itself, so stay tuned! The food and wine were amazing, and Bob and Lenore are just peachy. Looking forward to sharing more about it!
