Mr. Vetter,
I live in Enumclaw, Washington and my life long dream is to live in Cannon Beach. I would appreciate any and all emails you send out. Anything to do with Cannon Beach, pictures,information or whatever you think I may enjoy would be awesome. I am always on your site looking at the pictures. The one at the top with the snow just took my breath away. If there is any way to get a copy of that i would love to frame it. Thank You for keeping my dream alive. ~ Linda

I am a resident of Montana but born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland... I long for the water. My husband brought me to Cannon Beach for vacation in October two years ago... we will never miss another October. What a wonderful place. When things get overwhelming and life is just too nuts I find solace in the pictures you post and look forward to them daily. Seems I can always find my way back to that rock..the sights, the waves, the gulls, etc. THANK YOU for the work you do!!! Know that there are folks that truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work.
PS: I stopped by your studio this year but you were not open, I was buying a coffee and by chance found you. Wow.. nice store front. See you next October for sure!
