We Stopped over night in Port Angeles, pulling in about dark. We picked up fuel and water and made or way out first thing in the morning. So far it seemed as though the wind was almost always on the nose, making it very difficult to sail. Catching the current down the Strait of Juan De Fuca, we made good time to Neah Bay. Weather was nice, clear skies, and we saw a couple whale blows that day.
I was hopping that we would see more, I think it was the first whales Kendra had seen. Though we spent most our time motoring, we enjoyed our time and laughed often. Fart jokes abound! Mandy successfully gave Vianne a bath while under way, following Vianne's attempt to eat rice meal, or rather mom's attempt to feed her rice meal. At this point Vianne is more interested in the tecture of the food, and how pretty it looks on her hands, face, hair, floor and anywhere it lands. Up on deck she does well and almost always has a smile.
Pulling into Neah Bay we met up with Jason, aboard Bodrohn. He was also on his way south. We met up for dinner and had great laughs. It's nice to meet fellow cruisers of the same age. It's just a little ironic that Jason was taking Bodron South, in that I had actually looked at that same boat four years earlier to buy, prior to finding Boreas! I'm glad to see that she is in good hands. When we set out in the morning, fog was thick. I was thankful that I had the Radar running properly. Lion's Paw, a 28ft wooden vessel, was making her way to Oregon as well and left just behind up. We made arrangements to keep in contact with each other via VHF for our transit to Grays Harbor.
