As a child I grew up on a river. No, it wasnít the Petaluma River it was the Cheboygan River. It wasnít in California but in Northern Michigan. As a child I didnít really learn to appreciate the beauty of a sunrise or how the light danced on the river.
As I have grown older and the days seem to go by much faster than they used to I have learned to appreciate the finer nuances of the sunrise.
Because I work at my day job early in the morning I am now awake and normally on my way to work during the sunrise. During the summer I leave the house as the sun is rising and drive out of the western edge of the Sacramento Valley towards the San Francisco Bay Area. During the spring and fall I see the sunrise most often as I am pulling into the parking lot for the company I work for. That company is on a river. No, not the Petaluma River but the Sacramento River not to far from where the Sacramento River spills into the San Pablo Bay.
Another River that spills into the San Pablo Bay is the Petaluma River. The Petaluma River was very important to the growth of the young and booming city of San Francisco during the gold rush days.Petaluma is located north of San Francisco in Sonoma County and at the time Sonoma County was prime agricultural land. The city of Petaluma had at eh time the largest poultry and egg processing plant in the United States and quite possibly the world. Schooners would sail the Petaluma River in order to deliver the agricultural goods from Sonoma county to San Francisco.
