We stopped in Neah Bay to purchase our parking permits in order to visit Cape Flattery and Shi Shi Beach. This can be done at Washburn’s General Store, the Makah Tribal Mini Mart, and the museum.
We spent a good hour at the Makah Museum, which is an excellent place to learn about the history of the Makah people. It’s open daily with an adult admission of US$6 (as of January 2018). Photography is prohibited inside the museum.
The fascinating exhibits tell about every aspect of the Makah way of life, including fishing, hunting, basketweaving, and more. On display are several authentic artifacts, many found at an excavation site in the Ozette area. The site was inhabited until a mudslide destroyed it around 1750.
On the way to Shi Shi Beach, we stopped at Bahobohosh Point to take pictures of Hobuck Beach to the north and the mouth of the Sooes River to the south.
For lunch, we popped into the Warmhouse Restaurant, which has a nice view of the marina. I had a fish and chips meal while Marisol had the clam chowder. The fish and chips was very good but the chowder wasn’t that great. It came out to about US$20 for the two of us.
