The Goonies 'R' Good Enough

Somebody was nostalgic for The Goonies...
Nostalgia on an Oregon beach...
That's what Cyndi Lauper sang in 1985. Large parts of this quirky adventure movie were filmed in and around Cannon Beach and Astoria, Oregon and clearly inspired someone recently near Cannon Beach.

Haystack Rock near Cannon Beach, Oregon...
Haystack Rock attracts the beach visitors..
Cannon Beach' main beach is dominated by Haystack Rock, said to be the 3rd largest intertidal structure in the world. (What does 'intertidal' mean? I'll leave it to readers to discover that for themselves...)

During the summer, Cannon Beach' population triples as tourists and locals alike are drawn to the sand and dramatic surf of the waterfront. In 2013, National Geographic labelled it as one of the world's 100 most beautiful places.
