We spent the night and following day anchored on the lee side of Santa Cruz Island. It was a much needed break for Jack and the crew as well. We did get a little bit of work done. At the time it seemed like quite a mission to get the dolly and timelapse gear to the island (this would turn out to be a walk in the park compared to the Santa Barbara island landing). Jake and I put put our suits on and gear into drybags/pelican cases and Tommy carefully negotiated the Panga into a safe chest deep spot off of the beach with a cobble bottom. The suits seemed a bit much for the landing but were sure nice when we were done at 10pm and due to the tide swing, having to swim multiple gear laden trips to the boat.
The sunrise with Jack paddling and Anacapa in the distance was one of the most memorable moments from the whole trip. It was good seeing Jack beginning to hit his stride and it also felt as if the crew was hitting theirs as well.
