Girls' Beach Weekend

We spent the weekend in Manzanita for my sister Courtney's bachelorette getaway, and of course we took the opportunity to run on the beach. The weather was not that favorable, it was a constant down pour most of the time. Susan had to make the comment, "I don't think we could possibly get anymore wet", then the wind picked up and the rain started coming down sideways. Luckily we were only a few 100 yards from the trail head, so we sprinted back to the car.

We parked at Hug Point Beach and ran north 5 miles to almost the end of Cannon Beach and back. The tricky part about starting at Hug Point is you have to clamber up rocks to a barnacle path to reach the other side of the beach. Susan and I weren't very careful on our way back and slipped climbing up the rocks and scraped up our hands. If you are there during high tide it is nearly impossible to cross, so check the tide tables or park on the other side of Hug Point.
