Where at on the Oregon Coast? My favorite areas are Seaside, Astoria and Cannon Beach. All three so close yet they all have a real different character. If you know of the candy shop in Seaside called Philips, that place rocks. Was so close to buying it when I lived there. I really miss the Oregon coast. The jersey shore really sucks compared to whats in Oregon.

Yesterday I was at Lincoln City, I vacationed 2 years ago in Seaside, we loved it! can't recall seeing a Philips candy shop but we went through several shops while we were staying there.
