Neah Bay Final Prep

We made it to Neah Bay mostly motoring into flat seas. Just a little 30 knot head winds coming into Port Angles on Wednesday and 25 coming into Neah Bay on Thursday. But, not bad. Neah Bay is quite a friendly place. A dry town so I had a forced march to the store for beer in PA before departure. Glad I did, we met some Ha Ha participants–Dave & Becky from Gig Harbor here. Call for celebration. We’ll be leaving together in the morning.
On our morning run today we scoped out the Tribal museum, looked like a must do, but last minute boat projects prevented a real visit. One thing that I will remember about thlis place is “indian tacos” made with fry bread. mmmm.
We’re off tomorrow at 4:00 am with a pretty favorable forecast for north winds to carry us to Newport, hopefully arriving mid-day on Sunday. Rogue Brewery for dinner.
Everyone is a little nervous, especially Lucy–is the grass mat big enough?
We’ll see.

Our new maintenance program involves parking next to boats in distress to lessen the urgency for cleaning and shining.
