Islands in the Delta

Three years ago, Jeff and I bicycled through the Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta with the expectation of utilizing two ferries across water to complete the loop and return to our starting point in Rio Vista. Much to our surprise, the J-Mack ferry was out of service, essentially leaving us stranded on Grand Island with no choice but to embark on a long, windy retreat that mostly retraced our route in reverse.

Since that expedition, I’ve intended to try the original route again, this time with the ferries.

    Thanks for the “memories “. In the 80’s when my boys were small my ex and I boated most every weekend in the summer on the Delta….oh, the parties they had on Lost Isle. I heard they finally closed it down it got so crazy you couldn’t even take kids there. I think the wind is always blowing there!!

      Now I’m desperately searching for Lost Isle so I can head that way next time I’m pedaling through the Delta! 😉
