Salmon Bake/Depoe Bay

September 17, 2005

We left under somewhat cloudy skies, but the weather improved into a warm, sunny day. We visited Yaquina Bay State Park for a short rest stop, to view the ocean and distribution of the dinner tickets for the salmon bake. When we arrived at Depoe Bay City Park about 11:15 it was already quite crowded, but there were plenty of tables and seats available and servings of salmon were more than ample. Most everyone walked over to view the salmon cooking Indian style on alder stakes and the Indian dancing on the stage. We left about 2 p.m. and drove down the coast to Cape Perpetua. There was still a little fog on the ocean, but it was a beautiful day. At Cape Perpetua we drove up to the overlook and could see miles of coastline. We also had our afternoon break and finished up the goodies. We drove to the visitor center, which had closed, so we drove to Florence and arrived home at 5:45. Many thanks to Rick Ahrens, who gave a talk on the current status of the salmon industry as well as the differences between wild salmon and farm grown varieties. The salmon served at the bake had come from the Columbia. Thanks also to the hospitality committee and to our driver, Larry Edwards.

Those enjoying a day at the ocean and a delicious salmon lunch were Rick Ahrens, Ethel Allen, Mary Lee Cheadle, Connie Doolley, Rosemary Etter, Margaret Fea, Bette Hack (leader), Dora Harris, Ray Jensen, Mary Lemons, Barbara and Don Payne, Liz Reanier, Julia Snell, Janet Speelman, Vera Woolley and non-members Marjorie Crueger, Susie and John Dobson, Jean England, Sherry Lawrence and Pauline Sievers.
