Thanksgiving in Bend, Oregon

(Catching up on some old stuff…)

For a little change of pace this year, the Ponnusamy family rented a house on the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon to celebrate Thanksgiving 2009.  Whoever’s idea it was, it was brilliant.

Zizou enjoyed staring down the hissing swans from the dock.  While he never jumped into the water to attack them, when we were canoeing on this same water he did jump out of the canoe and swim to shore.

A highlight was a loop hike around Smith Rock State Park—an especially popular spot for rock climbers.  Some nice views of Mount Bachelor in the distance:
