Folks were tlaking recently about a ship that appeared off the coast in the ocean off Cannon Beach and appeared to be running back and forth up and down the coast in a small area.

While it turned out to be one of our Military Sealift Command vessels waiting for a berth in Portland, there’s a wonderful backstory about why the ship was so close to shore. A reminder that just because we don’t know why something is happening, that doesn’t mean the worst.
