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

Thats a cannon? What ever it is, it is encrusted with some weird S--t.

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

——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.....

I spent my youth looking at canons on that beach. No rust though.;>)

" I haven't found anything bigger than a glass ball."
I remember those, glass balls. The Japanese use/used them on their fishing nets and they're all over the Pacific.

Cannons wash up on a beach? What are they made of, balsa wood?
This is awesome...just like in the shipwreck chart at nwlimited.wordpress.com
