Neah Bay, Washington
Just dropped the hook in Neah Bay, gusty winds, low scudding clouds and rain providing a Halloween like welcome.
Our talkative boat cat, Shell was excited the anchor was down and just before dark we noticed her sitting inside the crab trap on the aft side deck. When it really started to rain she somehow made a Houdini like escape and bolted for the front door.
Weather for tomorrow looks decent and we're hoping the bar at La Push will be open. Not the beer bar as I believe the small village is dry, but the river/ocean interface 'bar' that can get rough and or dangerous with southerly swell. The USCG provides bar reports and regulates entry/exit across the bar, so we'll check in the morning to see how it looks http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/pqr/marine/bars_mover.php
No AT&T or Cricket cell or data coverage here... Verizon would be the way to go. Lucky for us we found an open WIFI network.
