They don't call it Cannon Beach for nothing. Two cannons were found on the Oregon Coast over the holiday weekend near Cannon Beach. Experts believe the cannons are from a ship that ran aground in 1846. The first cannon was found in 1898 and is gave the beach its name. The weekend's first cannon was spotted by a man and his daughter, who thought it might be a tree stump. That was until the girl noticed it was rusty. A state park official found the second cannon, while investigating the first find. Experts will handle the cannons' removal.
