Cannon Beach is one of my favorite places on the west coast.

Rounding Cape Horn in a schooner must have been a frightening experience.

As Nipsy Russell said on a game show “Match Game”. “I want to boogie with Adrienne Barbeau. She boogies fast and I boogie slow”.

——If they do turn out to be from the ship, “they would be very significant to the history of Oregon.” ——

Even more exciting would be cannons from Sir Francis Drake’s ship. I forget all the details, but he is rumored to have come up that far north - but fudged his ship logs so folks wouldn’t know where he had really been. I recall someone in Oregon had said they had found a sword from Drake’s ship and had it verified, but of course someone stole it and the documents were lost.....

Ok, now I see it. It's on its mount, laying on its side. But I contend, it still looks weird!

No arguement there. Weird little cannon to start with and not improved by it time under sea water.
