Mon. Jul. 19

Journey Update, Monday July 19 at 3 pm.

Canoes are preparing for soft landing. Skippers meeting in session.

Due to a death in the tribal community protocol may vary from that which is posted, but will proceed as much as possible according to plans.

Will post updates as they come in.

[Thanks to Elaine, Phil, Nano and others for update info!]

Delay

Canoes delayed on take-off from Elwha / Port Angeles (Hollywood Beach).

Rough and dangerous waters deterred departure from Hollywood Beach, Port Angeles, WA from their Elwha stopover. (Some canoes may have gone on the water against advisories, but most either turned back, or did not leave the beach.)

Canoes will most likely trailer tomorrow, to Piller Point, their next designated stop.

More updates as they come in.

(Info per Lower Elwha Skipper, Phil Charles, Jr. at 7am.)
