Again, we lost track of our programs at the time I wrote this flashback to the garden tour, so I cannot put a name to any cottage that does not have its name at the door. I do wish the the Cannon Beach History Center website or  Facebook page offered more memories of the tour for those of us who are scatterbrained with our programs. (Their WordPress site is much more active with lots of interesting articles about Cannon Beach history, but still no cottage names.) The fifth cottage was a quick walk from cottage number four.  As always, we checked out the garden first.

I was very taken with the red cottage just to the east.  Bright red, like my Grandma’s “little red house”.  Most houses in Cannon Beach are cedar shaked, so a painted one stands out.

Inside the window I could see a stool decorated with the word “shack”.  And a picture of a clam.  Clam shack.

Allan examined the fence between the two properties for carpentry details.

And now we will turn our attention to the cottage itself.

At one end of the sheltered porch, a heavy old storm door could be closed during a storm, so that one could open the front door of the house (to our right) without being blown away.

And now, in we go to the simple and lovely beachy cottage.  This one may be a vacation rental, or else it is occupied by some very tidy people!
