Proposed Route

Joyce arrives from Arizona tonight. We are both very excited to see each other and begin our long awaited journey. I have been anticipating and planning this trip for years; looking at charts, talking to people, taking the Lady Washington Tall Ship from Port Townsend to Gray's Harbor to test my ole sea legs.

We are beginning from the Warrenton Boat Yard on the Skipanon River.
This is an old route from last fall. But we will be following the blue route line out to C "1" which is farther out to sea than buoy R"8" that I took.

Columbia River to Gray's Harbor, Westport, Wa.

Westport, Gray's Harbor to La Push
La Push, Wa entrance is very narrow and shallow.
La Push to Neah Bay: This takes us from the ocean to the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Neah Bay is very protected with the 2 breakwaters.
