Port Angeles waiting... and having fun!

07 June 2010 | Port Angeles, WA
Sitting in Port Angeles with other cruisers (and showers)makes the anticipation of heading to sea more manageable. All are waiting for the same thing: an inch of sun and for this darn Pacific High to become more established. Last night it rained (quel surpise!)and the winds blew 35 knots. Port Angeles has not been a lonely place.
The 2 big ferries, which commute to Victoria BC,hunkered in our tiny marina for the night which is unusual. We heard that a family left for Hawaii last week (a mom, a dad 3 kids ages 5,6 &9, and a grandpa) on a 38 footer sailboat. Yikes...just as two low pressure system from Alaska came south. I am sure they are fine.

Port Angeles is a underrated boat haven for the boating community and a perfect stop before heading out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The marina is new and nice, the local boating services are reliable, affordable and efficient, something we did not find in Port Townsend...

On a lighter note, we spent the day yesterday with friends we had met in Mexico back in 2007 (sv Dreamweaver). Don and Jim have settled in Port Angeles building a beautiful home. They had brought their boat Dreamweaver up from Mexico to cruise this region. We went on a couple of amazing hikes, one to a gorgeous waterfall in the Olympic National Park.

We had planned one more to stop in Neah Bay, but our engine decided 'no go'. Having repaired the starter problem we'll be heading over to Victoria, BC for a couple of days then return to Port Angeles (weather permitting) to make our next attempt toward the elusive tropics...Cheers!
