Delta Attitude

When people ask me what the Delta is “like” I have to say a combo of a retirement community and an endless frat party.  The motor boaters own the Delta.  They race up and down the waterway like snow-mobilers in NH.  Shrieking kids pulled behind in big innertubes and the endless insect-like skidoo nuts are everywhere.  Nature lovers beware.  Your sightings of egrets and herons, harbor seals and river otters will be interrupted repeatedly.

One marina we visited pitched a permanent slip to me.  It is around $300 including liveaboard fees, which is about half of what it is in more urban spots.  They claim they have wifi but there are no jobs and the cell phone coverage is a little sketchy.  They finally conceded that I “have too many of my own teeth” to be happy there and gave up trying to sell me on the idea of moving to the Delta.
