My wife and are very fortunate to travel the planet in pursuit of our Wildlife photography but it’s always nice to be back Wandering the Delta and living in Discovery Bay a small town east of Mt. Diablo whose moto is "Live Where You Play" and play we do. As spring comes to a close the quiet water ways that surround our community come alive with activity. Living on the water sometimes has it’s challenges but the constantly changing views in our backyard and access to thousands of miles of waterways from Sacramento to Napa to San Francisco Bay is a blessing. There aren’t many communities in Northern California where you can just Wander down your ramp onto your dock and take off in a boat, paddle board, paddle boat, kayak or any one of the many types of water craft that ply our neighborhood. Or for some they can wander down to their dock and take off in their sea plane or ultra-light. I never get tired of our amazing sunsets and gorgeous constantly changing scenic views. I hope you enjoy some of my Delta Wandering photos from the past month.

    Memorial day officially kicks off boating season in Discovery Bay and the Yahoo Boaters are on the water. Some people just don’t have a clue about basic common sense, not to mention the boating laws. It’s one thing to endanger yourself it’s another to endanger children.

  What goes up must come down....

  As we watched the two Paramotors dance across the sky one came down crashing into the water when a wing tip snagged the water. Luckily no one was hurt, but one wet motor

I really appreciate the pictures and education about wild life and fun activities that happen in Discovery Bay. I’m a new resident for about a year now and blessed to be living here!
