Travel Digest #54 Boat launch in El Capitan Reservoir San Diego California

in Haveyoubeenhere4 days ago (edited)

Good Afternoon Hive community, right back at it with another Travel Digest, this would be my 54th one in the wonderful @haveyoubeenhere @pinmapple community. Today I present to you all the day that I had helped my nephew launch his boat at the El Capitan Reservoir, this was his first time launching his boat, an old boat that got past down to him in the family, so he was pretty exited to do this but a little unprepared a bit. We did however get it in the water but he had some struggles because I am not much of a boat fan no more, and I needed him to not be nervous and learn it mostly on his own, this is how one teaches. So being that it was his first time, not so bad at all and the best part is his boat floats, no taking in any water and the motor worked fine, now its not a speed boat but it works. His reason for wanting me to go is for adult supervision and he plans to take his boat out to the river in a few weeks and his buddy couldn't help him launch the boat like they originally planed, so Uncle had to help out.

Anyways enough about that let's get into a little history on El Capitan Reservoir, the reservoir is located in central San Diego County, California. It is in the Cuyamaca Mountains, about 30 miles northeast of the city of San Diego and two miles northwest of the town of Alpine. This reservoir was completed in 1934 and is a hydraulic filled reservoir with a 237 foot dam, with a capacity of 112,800 acre feet of potential water. How its was owned by the kumeyaae tribe but now the City of San Diego, I can only imaging what the city gave them in exchange on the deal, Yes they do have a Indian Casino, so I wont assume but I already know what goes on with everything. I see it all, I literally have taken off the blinders they gave me since birth, anyways back to the history. The water mainly has been fueled with the water by runoff but at times the San Vicente Reservoir does pump some in. They have some limited recreational usages like boating, water skiing at certain times of the year and of course fishing too. No camping which is dumb but whatever, this entire system is dumb.

Anyways thanks for being here and checking out my post today, I appreciate it. Bless you all on the crazy things to come and when or if we get back up and running I hope to see you all back again. Have a blessed day. Below is some shot's I took on the boat launch of the Reservoir, enjoy and I will see you next time. I wont bore you with small talk between my shot's this time, just enjoy the beauty as I do. One Love, God Bless.
