Eel Creek

November 14, 1993

No bad weather to add interest or excitement to this year’s Eel Creek trip. But, perfect weather for a day of beach walking and viewing the dunes. Clear and cool with a brisk breeze from the north. It was a one-way trip this year out over the dunes. Bob Dark supplied shuttle service so this large group could enjoy the three-mile walk along the beach to the South Jetty near the Umpqua lighthouse. The ocean was a beautiful blue with large waves rolling in and lots of white foam along the beach. The usual activities that accompany this trip — a stop at Arlene’s in Elkton for coffee and snacks as well as a stop at Dean Creek Elk Refuge — went off without a hitch. Two large herds of elk were sunning themselves near the refuge turnout. The day was complete with a stop at Mo’s in Florence for chowder for a majority of the people along for the day. Eel Creek trippers were Dallas & Jack Cole, Bob Dark, Nancy Fadeley, Amy & Fred Foust, Bea Fontana, Ray & Rita Jensen, Rose Malone, Glenn Meares, Ray Mikesell, Anne Montgomery, Bill Montgomery, Karl Nestvold, Dave Predeek, Gene Thaxton, Megan & Margee Wright and leader Jane Hackett.
