Spencer Spit and Cypress Head

We spent a few days in Anacortes working on some projects, and then took Airship out for some island time. We spent Saturday night at Spencer Spit State Park on Lopez Island. We left Cap Sante late and arrived at Spencer Spit by about 6:30pm. 


Saturday all day it was clear and gorgeous out, but Sunday morning the clouds had rolled in:


On Sunday we popped back over to Cap Sante to pick up a few things and then went over to Cypress Island for the night.


We normally stay at Eagle Harbor on Cypress, but this time we tried the NE cove at Cypress Head and it is lovely!


Looking toward Fidalgo Island, across the little bit of beach that joins Cypress Head to Cypress Island:


We went ashore and hiked around Cypress Head for a while. There are some primo campsites here:





After our hike we went for a little dinghy exploration. Lots of seals and bald eagles around here. We saw a bunch of porpoises yesterday on our way from Lopez Island to Cypress Island, too.


Sunset last night was beautiful and it was so calm in here overnight that it was hard to tell we were on a mooring ball and not in the marina.


This morning we're heading back into Anacortes. The carpet replacement in the stateroom and on the landing outside the head is almost finished…the stairs should be done today and all the trim pieces installed. It's looking SO GOOD! (You can see the last bit of carpet in the upper left corner. I won't be sad to see that go. 🙂
