A red letter day for sure. Willie catches her first mooring buoy on her first try. The procedure is for the Captain to maneuver the boat close to the buoy and for the mate (in this case the Admiral) to slip the bowline through the loop atop the buoy. Some times this is very difficult with wind and currents, but Willie threaded the needle like a pro.
After lunch and a brief nap, we continue our circumnavigation of Cypress Island. We poke around in the various coves and bays following the shoreline closely. There are two more sites on the East and North sides of the island, Eagle Harbor and Pelican Beach. Both of these locations have several more buoys.
