Fixed Thanksgiving Dinner on Indian Island this year! i've included 3min of video highlights in the link below..
Rainy day for the holiday, so I needed a quick access trail and this one worked great. I took the Isthmus Trail's stairs down to the beach and found a great spot, set up the table, chair, stove and managed to cook the gourmet turkey rolls (stuffed individually with either dressing, green beans, yams, or cranberry sauce) before a rain squall hit. My umbrella let me enjoy dinner without getting wet. Afterwards, I hiked the Isthmus trail loop with great views of the Portage Bay/Channel and Kitsap Peninsula across the water. But the best feature was the variety of contorted madrona trees!
