RiverCat Journal: Staying Put

Camp:  Redding, Ca     Sacramento River RV Park

I’m staying another week.  Why?

I discovered my very own little nature preserve.  It’ s actually a little cove off the Sacramento River, part of the RV park that I overlooked because it’s closed off to vehicular traffic with cones — akin to maintenance roads.  But when I ventured past the barrier, here’s what I found…

Here’s a little cove off the Sacramento River with a dilapidated pier.  I have aspirations of setting up my folding chair and a good read on that pier when things dry out a bit. (It’s supposed to be in the 70s the next few days).  Here’s the playground…

Here’s my quiet-hideout-of-the-day.  I did a bit of reading at one of these picnic tables overlooking the river.  The couple on the golf cart were the only other humans I’d seen on this grassy trail for an entire 2 hours.

What the heck is this thing?  The pungent-peppery odor is similar to that of a buckeye, but it’s the size and color of a plum…

I think I’m going to have a good week here in Redding.  I have it all, really — a nice little piece of real-estate, some upcoming warm weather, an opportunity to make a wage at the local poker rooms, and plenty of sightseeing opportunities.  Maybe I’ll even get a bit of work done!

    That looks like an ideal spot to tarry for awhile. If the weather holds you should have an enjoyable stay.
