Thanksgiving tradition at the Oceano Dunes

Hundreds head to the Oceano Dunes with their families for Thanksgiving.

Despite the rainy conditions, the Oceano Dunes had many people out camping this Thanksgiving holiday.

Bay area resident Sue Jordan says she has been camping at the dunes every Thanksgiving for the past 40 years, and that tradition is being passed on to the next generation.

Family member of Jordan, Rebecca Melero, recalls coming to the dunes ever since she was a little kid.

"Tradition, riding, experience, good family fun," says Melero.

"The kids can go riding, they can go in the ocean, they go fishing , and they learn to BBQ and cook and it's just a great family time," says Jordan.

The two say they come out with about 30 other friends and family members, and the Thanksgiving tradition is not forgotten.

Each member of their group brings their own side dish and they gather for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

"I would encourage families to come out, it's a great experience and something you don't get anywhere else" says Melero.
