Doo Dah Comes to a Close
Moments before this story was uploaded, the final Delta Doo Dah morning net concluded with bittersweet thanks to all the participants, organizers and sponsors. No doubt everyone had a terrific vacation in the delightful Delta sun, and all are looking forward to a great BBQ and party hosted by the generous folks at Stockton Sailing Club tonight, but Doodette Christine Weaver’s detailed weather report of wind on the nose for the bash home, coupled with reports of fog, fog, and more fog on the Bay, brought the reality home: Delta Doo Dah Deux is coming to a close and we will now return you to regularly scheduled programming.
But once home, this year’s batch of Doo Dah’ers will at least carry with them warm memories of their three ‘free days’: consuming mass quantities of clam chowder at The Lighthouse, water battles in which the deadliest foes were teenage girls, picking blackberries along the levies, runs to Korth’s for more ice and refreshing beverages, sailing wing-on-wing up the Stockton Deep Water Channel, and above all, letting go of the ‘real world’ for just a little while.
The Doo Dah may be over, but the weather is still fine in the Delta: Perfect 85° temps and endless sun. If the Bay’s so-called summer has been getting you down, you owe it to yourself and your family to take a trip up river — even if only as far as Petaluma — to dry out and soak up some Vitamin D.
We’ll file a full report on the Doo Dah in the September issue, but in the meatime, enjoy a few snapshots from Potato Slough.
