          As September brings the end of summer and the beginning of fall there was still was plenty of activity on the Delta. A gorgeous not overly hot Labor Day weekend brought many out onto the water for all sorts of classic Delta activities. Back in the day the main water sports activity was water skiing, tubing and knee boarding. Wake Boarding then became the most popular water sport and now its seems that Wake Surfing has quickly moved up in popularity. It looks fun although it seems it can get somewhat boring, I personally have never tried it though. I must say, I hate the monstrous wakes these boats throw, making navigation more difficult as you pass one of these slow motion plows and wrecking the water for most other water sports. It will be interesting to see how these giant wakes impact our fragile levees especially in more narrow waterways.  Our hearts go out for the many affected by the Northern California fires that continued to burn creating hazy conditions and crazy sunsets throughout the Bay Area. Overall it seemed to be a real nice summer in Discovery Bay.  

PS Thanks to my wife and boat captain who puts me in position to capture life on the Delta
