Wind Surfing on W. Sherman Island Road

I was going to Rio Vista last Saturday for the Bass Derby. Road work delays on 160 forced me to rethink my plans & turn around. I made a right hand turn onto Sherman Island Rd., just north of the Antioch Bridge. I was shocked at how many "wind lovers" I saw out there (dozens). On the far left side you can see where wind swept waters wash over the road. Kind of like our own little Stinson Beach.
