View from our landing

I went out on the front landing tonight and saw the San Joaquin Yacht Club barge’s lights through the trees.
It looked so pretty. The SJYC is headquartered in an old 1920s river boat called the Sutter. In the olden days she used to haul freight from San Francisco up to the Delta. Her working life ended in the 1950s after roads and trucks replaced the river runs. For some daylight pictures of the old Sutter and the refurbished yacht club click here.

We are not yacht club members but we get to enjoy a glimpse of the old barge, docked nearby, when the trees are bare.

There was a bit of camera shake, or else the boat was bobbing up and down in the water when I took the picture with a long exposure.
It was a last chance to take the photo when the tide was high and the trees were still bare. Next week the trees will leaf out and we won't have the clear view.
