At the lighthouse at the mouth of the harbor, the chop picked up and the paddling went from protected to open ocean. We headed West following the coast to a large wooden pier at Salem Willows Park where we stopped for lunch. There is an old, famous place there that makes the best popcorn we ever had. We put in again and took a due South course from the lighthouse back to the beach where we put in.
All told, about five miles of pleasant paddling.
