Picturesque Rio Vista was first named Los Brazos del Rio (The Arms of the River) for its proximity to the confluence of the Sacramento River, Steamboat Slough, and Cache Slough. The river was once its reason for being, and the town's huge wharf welcomed steamers like the New World and Eclipse that moved mail, freight, and passengers between Sacramento and San Francisco. The same river rose up to destroy the town after a massive flood in 1862. Although many decamped, a few determined survivors stayed on after the disaster and managed to secure a safer site for "New" Rio Vista, reborn as a thriving agricultural community. In the same spirit, Rio Vista incorporated as a city in December 1893, just 17 months after a fire burned most of its downtown. Now this growing city, close to luxury residential developments, sits atop the largest dry gas reserve in California.

Dear Reader, Living in Rio Vista I was fascinated by the whales being lost in The Sacramento River. Although I did not live here when Humphrey visited in 1985, I am blessed with many tales and pictures of his visit. During the time Delta and Dawn were lost here I had the opportunity to see them first hand and was fascinated by the fact that they could get lost in a river. No one seemed to understand why the whales would not go under the bridge and what would drive them back in the wrong direction. With my imagination going wild about how it would make a cute story for children, I waited for what turned out to be a happy conclusion allowing me to finish my tale with a happy ending. Surprisingly enough baby whales' fascination with Humphrey's story, being lost in The Sacramento River, allowed baby whale to take control of the situation and lead her mother safely back home to the ocean.
