|Looking up the Sacramento|
Walnut Grove is way up the river. I never thought we would head that far in, but what the heck. We need to be in fresh water about another week to kill all the salt water growth that has been accumulating on our hull. Lot easier to do it this way then to scrub it off from the dingy.
We were coming into Isleton looking for the public dock. Saw a nice looking one and made an approach. Too bad, private property signs all over it. Just as we started pulling back out into the river to find the public dock, Ron started yelling a welcome to us and waved us in to use his dock. Turns out he is selling his place, and had buyers arriving momentarily. Told us we were perfect staging for his dock, and that we were welcome to spend the night and hook up to his power. Turns out we are now cheap props in Ron's life. That's OK, saved us a bundle on marina fees, plus the steakhouse we hoped to find for dinner tonight is right across the street.
