Delta Thunder Powerboat Racing

Last weekend Antioch Rivertown Jamboree presented DELTA THUNDER at the new Antioch Marina. It was a tough weekend for racing (with the wind swept water chops) but with the all the booths, food and Lady Washington in town there was still much to do.

Potatoe Barge Restaurant 1974-'79

Lucile P. Meinhardt posted this photo on YKYFAW (You Know You Are From Antioch When) this week. The restaurant owner's Shannon & Ron Nadeau opened the 2nd & F St. downtown Antioch restaurant and bar in late 1975. They featured fondue, poor man martini's (draft beer with green olives), belly dancing and dinner theatre. This was a very eclectic group serving good food. The photo reminds me of Monty Python. It was very popular and sorely missed. I have know idea why they closed.

Like Two Ships Passing In The Night

People in Kansas will never see this. The waterways, it's one of the nice things about living in East County. I'm always pleased to watch one of these ships travel down the river like this one did last Saturday. See how shipping has changed in 300 years.
