Memorial Day Weekend

All in all it was a good weekend.

Puppy's follow up appointment with the doctor on Saturday went well. Her liver levels were still elevated but not as much as they had been. She should be back to normal by the end of the week. Ironically, she's taking bubble gum flavored amoxicillin through an eye dropper, so I don't think there will be any lessons learned on her part.

It rained the rest of the day so we couldn't do too much outdoors. We had big plans to get our little boat in the water, but that didn't happen. Soon enough. I personally want to haul it up to Oyster Bay and test it out in "the bathtub" where we learned to sail last Memorial Day weekend. I think it would be easier to figure out if anything else is wrong with it in the protected little area in front of the Waterfront Center. There was definitely some cracking noises coming from the mast area when we took it out in October. 

Yesterday was the first time I was out at the beach since the hurricane. The beach was unrecognizable. The private beach and bird preserve are gone. It's ten feet of beach carved into a small cove over there. The main beach is shorter than I've ever seen it. All of that sand has washed into a sandbar that stretches out to where the old beach would have ended. They put up tall metal dividers so you can no longer cross over the highway. That path through the woods is blocked by a huge pile of dirt and sand. It was very sad to see but a gorgeous day none the less. A couple of JD's friends from law school came out from the city for the day. We set up a windscreen, barbecued, and made friends with two little dogs called Rio and Paola (but I'm pretty sure they only liked us for our food).
