Delta Wanderings III – Sept 2019 -- “Delta Summertime Fun"

   “Live Where You Play” – Is Discovery Bay’s motto and as a water based community there are lots of opportunities right outside our back door to be active and have all round non-stop fun times and summertime is when most of the play occurs. Maybe I’m just getting older but it sure seemed like a short and less hot summer to me, and now with Labor Day behind us and the fall rains already starting summer is starting to seem like a distant past. So to celebrate another fun summer on the Delta I thought it might be fun to take a look into the rear view mirror to revisit some of Summer’s Fun Times on the Delta.

   Hydrobikes seems to be a new craze on our waterways. Our sloughs are ideal for these fun toys. They are very stable, easy to ride and provide as low impact way to get some exercise while exploring the sloughs of Discovery Bay

       BTW the lack of bindings didn't seem to help when exiting the rail, as it ended up as a head plant

    Discovery Bay Kids Fishing Derby --- Every year the Discovery Bay Community Foundation hosts a FREE family fishing derby for all kids 15 years of age and under. Looked like a fun time and the kids were pulling up fish left and right.

      Clouds --- sometimes the best scenes at sunset is not looking west towards the sun but looking in the opposite direction at the clouds. The other night was one of those nights as the skies turned from yellows and oranges to pinks and pastels.

     The go to sport on the Delta used to be Water Skiing, then Wake Boarding seemed to take over, now Wake Surfing is rapidly climbing in popularity, that is if you can afford a $75k-$100k boat

   Most start with a real short rope right behind the swim deck. Then with some practice the surfer tosses the rope back to the boat and just rides the wake curl.

  Personally I hate these slow moving giant wave generators which wreck the waters for many other activities especially given our narrow waterways.

  No Towing Involved???  --- The fast water section of Indian Slough is a “Special No Tow Zone” on holidays and summer weekends. This guy was wake surfing behind a boat and No Tow Lines were used. Did he violate the NO Tow Zone? Interesting question.

   Bonehead Boaters --- An ongoing series dedicated to Yahoo and Moron Boaters who ignore boating laws, regulations and general common sense, and who operate water vessels with total disregard for their safety and those around them. Especially timely given that two people recently drowned in Discovery Bay, reminding us the dangers of the water. Accidents waiting to happen...

I just found your blog and website. Your photos are beautiful. We've live here over 20 years on the golf course coming from Sacramento also on the delta.

You really shows how special Discovery Bay is! I am working my photography skills and hope to be able to shoot photos as beautiful as yours.

Thank you Bill for your beautiful pictures. We are truly blessed to live in Discovery Bay. I also appreciated your pictures and comments about the bonehead boaters. Two nights ago I saw a boat being towed by another when they were passed within 15 feet by a ski boat going full speed. It seems like every year I see more and more things like this from irresponsible, ignorant and dangerous boat operators. Boats speed through 5 MPH areas including under the Orwood Bridge. They don’t slow down around blind corners or even for downed skiers. They pass too close and have no consideration for their wake (particularly wakeboard boats) and have no conception or the Rules of the Road or common courtesy I don’t know all the details of the tragic accident last week but it is obvious that at least one if not both were at high speed in an area of narrow channels and blind turns.
I unfortunately only see things getting worse. Licensing may help a little. The Sheriffs do a good job but they have limited resources and miles of waterways to cover.
Sorry for my rant and once again thank you for pictures. I always look forward to the calendars so I can see them every day.
