Reid Harbour, Stuart Island

Sunday morning we crossed the border back into U.S. waters and were able to quickly clear Customs via telephone because all 4 of us have NEXUS/Global Entry cards. Sure is easy, and well worth the $50 fee (every 5 years), in-person interview, finger-printing and criminal background check run by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. 

Stuart Island, in the San Juan islands, has a pretty anchorage on the south side with lots of room for many boats and good holding in thick mud. 

All 4 of us took the 6-mile hike out to Turn Point Lighthouse at the NW corner of the island. 

And went on the self-guided tour of the beautiful home where the Lightkeeper's family used to live, and Docents work still.

Prawns for dinner wrapped up another great day.
