Märzen is home

07 October 2007 | Oxnard, CA
She's still pretty weak, but she's getting better daily. Yesterday afternoon when she first came home, she could barely move without shaking. Today she's much better. She even finally noticed the little dachshund across the channel and barked back at her.

The winds here are amazing: day before yesterday we had near gale northwest winds; this morning we had gale force easterly winds. Tomorrow morning when we're heading out, the forecast is for "wind variable 10 kt or less...becoming SW 10 kt late in the afternoon." That's just right for motor-sailing to Marina Del Rey.
