Port Angeles, Washington
Stormy weather persists offshore, so we'll continue to hold up here in Port Angeles. Neah Bay is the typical jumping off point for boats heading south, but limited internet and phone service in Neah Bay would hamper our productivity and significantly limit our ability to monitor the weather further down the coast. It's only 50 miles to Neah Bay, so if we catch the tide right and get a nice 8-9 knot ride out the Strait of Juan de Fuca it's only 6-7 hours, all the services here in Port Angeles far outweigh the benefits of waiting for an indefinite time period in Neah Bay.
