September 28th and 29th, 2015 Left Port Angeles to Neah Bay
Arrived in Neah Bay. All day motoring with a bout of sea sickness (only Monica), we were tired. We were met with warm sun and many sea lions that are permanent residents of Makah Marina. This is the last protected stop of the San Juan's according to the navigational guides, Charlie's Chart. It says we are committed once we round Cape Flattery. That sounded like a good advice. As a result we are staying another night to make sure that we have all our belongings on board strapped down. We are sure to meet swells, winds that create 3-5 ft waves, not to mention more than 15deg heel while under sail.

|Girls are squinting in the sun trying to capture pictures of the sea lions.|
we saw sea lions fighting on the dock. One pushed another one off the dock. Then, the one that was pushed jumped back onto the dock and fought again. The same one got pushed off again. Then, the sea lion remaining on the dock snorted victoriously making fun of the one he pushed off. Another one jumped on another dock, and took a nap. Also,if you ever go to Neah bay you should go to the museum. Unfortunately,you are not allowed to take pictures.
These are Sophia's comments:
In the museum there are stuffed sea lions and real bear skin and seal skin. There are also whale bones.
There is a replica of a long house that has the bear skin, the seal skin, and dried salmon.
