It's freezing again this AM. Wish what we call summer would get here. Ya know our summer sunny but cold and windy.
Mr. M. and I did take a drive over to the North Jetty yesterday. There is really nothing to do there but when the tide is out and if you bundle up you can walk the area.
The Siuslaw (Si-ooos-law) River enters the Pacific Ocean about 250 km (155 miles) south of the Columbia River. The jetties and spurs at the entrance are randomly-placed rubble-mound structures of armor stone weighing from 10,885-to 17,235-kg (12- to 19-ton). The jetties border the river channel on the north and south, and were built originally between 1910–1917, with the north jetty originally 2,957 m (9,700 ft) long, and the south jetty 1,980 m (6,500 ft) in length. There is a lot of history here, not so good for the Natives, but history none the less.
Prior to 1880, the Siuslaw River Valley was inhabited by the Siuslaw people, who used the river for transportation upstream by canoe for salmon runs or to reach hunting areas. The Coast Indian Reservation, including some Siuslaw lands, had been established in 1855, but from 1860 to 1875 the Siuslaw population declined from 129 to 45. Under the 1887 Dawes Act, land allotments were given in trust to the Siuslaws, but few were able to pay the property taxes. The decline in Siuslaw presence in the watershed brought the start of white settlement, and the expectation the river would be used by larger commercial craft to transport resources and goods.

Now to get into the T-Gang I need to show a drink. Today is something I have not had for many years but wanted something warm. Black strap molasses and hot milk with a dab of vanilla. OMG! it is sooooo good. Add some banana, zucchini and carrot cake with it and how can you go wrong?
Be sure to stop by Elizabeth and Bleubeard's blog to see what the rest of the T-Gang are up to.
Be Safe Out There And Wear A Mask.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
