The Mermaid of Isleton


NSL friend (and editor at Yacht Pals) Fred Eagle writes via Facebook

Hey David….Have you seen her? I snapped this pic for you at the Hotel Del Rio in Isleton. An awesome mermaid painted on glass behind the bar. The bar is curved and so is the glass…cool funky joint. Been the same since 1949. I didn’t have any gear with me so I will go back and get you better pics. ’til then…enjoy mate!

Thanks!  We  are prepping for a cruise up to the North Bay and as far into the Delta as we can manage, we’ll see if time and water depth hold out that far…

I don’t like Mondays

Marina the Mermaid & Los Straightjackets

Medusirena Marina performing her bed-of-nails and fire-eating act last week at Hukilau 2009, to the throbbing jungle drums and wailing guitars of Los Straightjackets.   Your Correspondent can be clearly seen as the white blob in a hat on the other side of the pool at the 3:20 point.
