Road Trip from Townsend to Neah Bay

We had a slow Sunday in Port Townsend, so we decided to take a drive to scout out anchorages that might be needed later. We drove across the north edge of the Olympic Peninsula along the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Cape Flattery. This route took us through Sequim, Port Angeles, and Clallam Bay and Sekiu to Neah Bay. Highway 112 is bordered by extremely lush forest and is well worth the slow unhurried drive.

The anchorages are quiet and look like they would give good shelter from southern winter storm patterns. They might not be as safe in a strong northwest blow.

We got some excellent freshly smoked salmon from a traditional Indian smoke house in Neah Bay.
