Snorkeling at Cannon Beach
The primary beach at the park is called Cannon Beach not only because there are two 17th century cannons on the shore but also there are several sunk offshore as a simulated shipwreck along with an anchor and dedication plaque.
There is also a trench that starts about 50 feet offshore and most of the width of the beach. We started on the south side of the trench and swam over the trench to the north side to see the shipwreck.
It was fun. A bit freaky swimming over 100 feet over a 20 plus deep dark trench but fun. Duuun-dun. Duuun-dun. Dun-dun-dun-dun… We had no idea what was below us.
At the very end of the video, I got a few seconds of a lobster hiding under a rock then suddenly a CRAMP!
We had to end our snorkeling trip. I got a horrible cramp in my left calf. It was so bad that we headed back. It took 3 days to recover. I have had bad cramps before, but it has never taken more than a day to recover. Getting older is not for wimps.
