Neah Bay

Neah Bay, Washington is the most northern and western point on the lower 48 US States.

When Joe was a small boy, his grandfather and grandmother came to this area every year (from their home in the Seattle area) and stayed through the entire fishing season, selling what they caught at the docks. That would have been in the 1960's. Joe and his sister Rochelle got to spend a week at their cabin (which was only accessible by boat). I find it amazing to think that the boat they used was just under 16' long! On the Pacific Ocean? That water can get rough!

We arrived at low tide so had a nice opportunity to observe the tide pools.

Such colorful specimens!
