Today we drove to the Bay to check on Annie and to take a painting to the gallery in Mathews. It was a bright, clear day in the 30's and climbing down below reminded me of cold nights out in early trips. She was dry and had a crisp, still feel aboard. Asleep awaiting the spring when her 'mates'... wind and water join in again.
After returning home and a nice dinner we watched the second episode of Chasing Shackleton on PBS Video Online. Extreme sailors and mountaineers attempt to recreate the heroic rescue voyage of the polar explorer. It is a grueling endeavor with great scenes of a relentless Southern Ocean off Antarctica. I grabbed a blanket about half way through. Recommended.
