Change of CA Delta scenery
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:10:58 PM »
Doggies were unhappy to find out I'd sneaked out fishing while they were sleeping. I had a canine welcoming committee when I got back to the dock.

A change of scenery today - the Orwood railroad bridge, one of numerous Delta drawbridges that has opened for us to pass through in the big boat many times over the years. If you wish to get in or out of Discovery Bay by water, you have to pass through this Bascule bridge over Old River.

The active railroad track parallels this slough and, if you arrive at the wrong time, the bridge tender has no choice but to make you wait for any trains that are lined up. Bridge tenders are hailed on VHF channel 9, or a long-short horn blast. I prefer the courtesy of a radio call with "please", and a "thank you for the opening" after we've passed through.
