Buckley Cove is a small municipal park in Stockton, California. We camped in a nice campground next door. Shadow went down the slides and through the tubes in the kids’ playground.
Hundreds of sailboats were wet and dry-docked in the park’s marina.
The boat launch area was overrun with aquatic plants, but it didn’t seem to bother the boaters… or the ducks.
We heard a loud, deep rumbling while sitting in our RV. So I rushed outside and was surprised to see this huge cargo ship chugging through the Stockton Deep Water Channel, which flowed alongside our campground. We were about 80 miles from San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean, but apparently the channel was a major shipping route into Stockton.
