    OK, here are the details for the Grand Tour of the California Delta. We'll go from quirky restaurant to a cool Old Sugar Mill with plenty of scenery in between. For this one I am flexible, since the end of the drive does not require getting there at a specific time. If there's anything you want to change or include please let me know. As you may know from previous delta drives, there are not a lot of opportunities for spirited driving (except for the trip through Birds Landing) most will be easy cruising - sight seeing and socializing.
    I drove through Locke and talked to the owner of Lockeport Grill and Fountain. I asked what time she opened on Saturday. She said "well, let me know what time you'll be here and I'll open up for you" (hence, the quirky part). Oh, I need to call her on Friday and remind her. Heck, why not, it looks like a nice clean place, and it's very Delta-ish on the coolest street in California, couple doors down from Al the Wop's. I did tell her some of us will be eating breakfast there, so please support her and eat or have coffee there if possible. (And I do have a backup meeting place close by if this falls through).
    Here's the itinerary:
    9:30am - Meet at Lockport Grill and Fountain in historic town of Locke (meet at 10-ish if not having breakfast)
    10:30 Drive to hwy 12, then to the Delta Loop for the full flavor of Delta Life.
    Back to Rio Vista Bridge then over to Birds Landing.
    Drive through 505 Megawatts of Wind Powered generators (Shiloh Wind Power Plant)
    Back up to the Ryde Hotel, then east to Grand Island Road past the Mansion (include stop/mini tour if desired)
    Approximately 1:30pm Arrive at the Old Sugar Mill for tastings and food.
    The Old Sugar Mill is a cool laid-back venue where we can do a tasting from some of the 15 different wineries on the premises, have lunch, and picnic outside in the large courtyard, or have lunch at Rendez Vous restaurant. Basically, take our time and enjoy the venue and it's history, and relax for a while before heading home.

    This is my preference for lunch - but there will be other options.

    Please RSVP if you'll be having breakfast in Locke so I can give them a heads-up.
    Thanks!

                          Dick, there is no outside food allowed, but I'm sure we can get away with a small bag of food (discretely), etc if there's something special you want to bring (it's not monitored that closely). But the plan was to purchase lunch there.

                            We're both down with a truly miserable cold, but we're going to make this last drive of the year if we have to do it in an Uber.

                                  And Advil, chicken soup, and plenty of liquids. Anne's had it for several days and starting to get over it, so there's a good chance that at least one of us will be some semblance of functional.

                                      The smoke from the fires up north appears to be much lighter today. Hopefully a clear day tomorrow.
