Re: Woman Missing A warning to Newbies.
I lived near there on that coast for two years and travelled the full length of it around to Portsmouth. It is one scary and treacherous place, worse in many ways than the west coast here. Tides second only to Fundy, extreme tide races, only tiny nooks in the cliffs for harbours and on & on. Sailing off the Oregon coast would be a reasonable facsimile. It's the absolute definition of a lee shore.
No place to screw around or take things lightly or you will quickly become a finalist in the Darwin awards.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
