Thanks for your response! We're from Northern California, so I do have an idea what to expect along the shore. A little concerned about rough waters, though ... my in-laws went from SF to Victoria on the way to Alaska and said it was rough going, even taking seasick prevention medication. Hoping going a different time of year than they did makes a difference.
I'll have to track down that board on the other site ... crazy days with a 13 month old but will try to take a look tonight.
