We dropped Steve's cousin, Matt, off for work in the morning - it worked perfect because he works right across the road from the Space Needle and we had a reservation to go up to the observation deck.
We left Seattle fueled with Starbucks and stopped for lunch at Salty's on Redondo Beach with my dad's cousin.
Next stop was Cannon Beach and this was a highlight of our whole trip, can for sure see a trip back here in our future! Also the purple hydrangeas were my absolute favorite - I think we need to try and grow those at home.
We spent the night in a cute little Airbnb just a few miles down the coast from Haystack Rock.
