Thanksgiving at Westwind

I had a great Thanksgiving at Westwind with the Black Mountain group.  I was able to take a walk before the big dinner and the tide was way out.  It was VERY low.  The picture above is of Cascade Head from the   Westwind Beach.  My friend Ken and I walked as far south as we safely could go and saw this keyhole through the rocks that normally close off the south end of the beach:

Until you got close, it seemed easy to walk through and go to Lincoln City, but actually it wasn't! We didn't try it, but walked as far as we could north...where the Salmon River was coming through.  It was weak because of the low tide, but still a river.  Then we headed East and eventually found the road to the lodge at Westwind...just in time for the big feast.

I meant to take pictures of the Thanksgiving Feast, but didn't.  There were 81 there, and a good time was had by all.....lots of pies!!!
