This morning's office view at Eagle Harbor on Cypress Island:
We left Anacortes late yesterday and headed over to Eagle Harbor on Cypress Island for the night. It was just over an hour to Eagle Harbor.
We grabbed a mooring ball and took the dinghy to shore to walk around a bit (and check out potential hikes for tomorrow) before starting dinner.
Our office view this morning was not too shabby:
We got up and did a bunch of work this morning before going to shore for a pre-breakfast hike.
We took the trail up to Duck Lake. This short hike is a loop — about 2 miles — and if you go counterclockwise it's a nice gradual uphill to the lake with the steeper part downhill at the end. I forgot to turn the tracker off for the dinghy trip back the boat:
Here's a link to a good map of the trails on Cypress Island.

Duck Lake, complete with ducks!
We have great service here (AT&T and Verizon) and even watched the last two episodes of The Jinx last night without a single glitch.
We're working a bit more here and then pretty soon I think we'll go off in search of a new island to explore.
Here's our short route from yesterday (9.2 nautical miles):
