Just outside of Eagle Harbor on Cypress

Waking up this morning with a beautiful sunrise, a bit of frost on the decks, birds chirping and flat calm. Ive seen this all before, yet somehow its just as impressive as the first time. For the first cruise of the season, I’m reminded why we do this.

Cypress island is only a stones throw from my home port, I ran no more than 7 knots last evening to get here and burned almost a gallon of fuel over about 45 minutes it seemed. Trying to decide whether to stay here another night. With no generator, I’ll have to run the main engines to heat up water for a shower anyway, and put a little charge back to the battery.

It seems crazy to even think of moving from such a spot when you think about it, yet this is the fortune we have in this part of the world.
