Beautiful weekend at Devil's Isle.

We were "harbor master" this weekend, which meant we cleaned off the tables for dinner and took home the trash and sign in sheet. It was a gorgeous weekend and Hulk had a great time with the other dogs there.

Another beautiful day

Heading over to Devil's Isle. Saw three freighters already in just five minutes on the river. One passed right in front of us as we turned into the main river. We're turning off onto a freighter free slough now. 

We're also trying out our new flybridge cushions from the Improvements catalog.

Fantastic Weekend

The is from mid May, just saw it did not get published when I tried at the time. 

Ox Bow cruise to Stockton for a Stockton Ports baseball game. 

Loving Delta Living

We've had some lovely Delta weekends lately. A ski boat weekend a couple weeks ago where we went through the beautiful Steamboat Slough and had a late lunch at Wimpys deck bar, then last weekend was an Ox Bow Yacht Club cruise to Delta Marina in Rio Vista. We had a lovely dinner (all 35 of us) at the Point restaurant. They did an amazing job with our large group. 

Cruising in the Other Girl
Lunch at Wimpys
I'm always amazed how much faith people put in their electronics. They are not 100% accurate, I can assure you the boat was really in the blue and not the yellow. 

Nice group at our cruise out. Popular gas dock, saw lots of LEOs fueling up for their patrols (right next to coast guard station Rio Vista plus I think the sheriff boat(s?) is kept here.

Great Saturday

Had a productive day. Got diesel, changed the oil and got Spirit onto a floating dock. 
Tying the floating dock to the roof after picking up and installing the foam insulation that provides the flotation. 
Using new electric oil extractor to remove the old oil 
Fresh "black gold" or as Matt said, pouring in fresh dinosaurs.
