When Roger Clyne brings his musical clan to Rocky Point for the annual Circus Mexicus concert and three day celebration of life, rock and roll and good times on the beach, it is also a time when the goodness of his fans is clearly defined with charitable action that includes fundraising and donations to help the needy children and families of our beloved beach side paradise.
Few Dare to Dream. Fewer Dare to Live Their Dreams. Steve and Lulu Yoder are among the ‘fewer’. They dared to dream of sailing the Sea of Cortez, living aboard their own vessel and spending ample time getting to know a country they knew they would love based on past travel in Mexico. They dared to live that dream when they retired. They sold everything that didn’t fit in their 28’ Westsail Cutter-Rigged Sloop and literally sailed off into the sunset. This was two years ago and they are still having fun, adventure and life fulfillment.
On Sunday May 27th, our good friends, Mark and Barb Olszewski of the Adopt-a-Classroom (http://www.rockypointclassroom.com/ ) local Puerto Peñasco charity organization, took 20 generous contributors 27 miles southeast of Puerto Peñasco to Isla San Jorge (known locally as Bird Island) for some snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, bird and sea lion watching.
Whatever you call them, the shops on Revolución between the tracks and the Convention Center now under construction are surviving the time until the center is completed and the rest of the road is paved to the Sandy Beach resorts
Where else can you get $300 in chips for one $30 ticket (or $600 in chips for $50 and two tickets) and a chance to compound the value by winning at Black Jack, Roulette, or Texas Hold ‘em? Then, let the fun begin because at the end of this wonderful night of games, food and a cash bar, you’ll be able to bid on dozens of great prizes that have been cheerfully donated by our many generous businesses here in Rocky Point.
But, before we get to the ‘Cat in the Bag’, there are over 30 other really good reasons for you to stop by Shrimp Plaza (on the corner of Benito Juarez and Fremont between Bancomer and City Hall) on Saturday May 26 from 10:00AM until 5:00PM.
The more than 30 local businesses, artists and crafts makers who snapped up all the available spaces almost immediately represent the active nerve center of folks who help make your visit to Puerto Peñasco so darn much fun while you’re here. This Business Expo is the Mexican and American business communities reaching out so you can get to know them even better than you already do. It’s the business community melded with the City of Puerto Peñasco wanting to get to know you better as well.
Around noon on Saturday, May 5 along Sandy Beach a colorful array of sails guided 14 catamarans into position for the annual Spring Fun Sailfest put on by Multihull Fleet 42 of Phoenix, the only open-class multihull sailing club in the Southwestern region. They also have a Laser Fleet, and in actuality welcome any other small monohull sailboats as well.
If you are a frequent visitor or resident of Puerto Peñasco and haven’t eaten at Tacos Brissa yet, the next time you find yourself at Melchor Ocampo and Sinaloa (down the street from Aká Sí on the corner across from the Oxxo), stop in and try one of Gama Tavarez’menu items for lunch or dinner.
Colors of Mexico This is a country of heart And it has been since the start
With bright colors everywhere you look Like crayons in a coloring book
Born and raised in the historic Arizona border town of Douglas, Tony Ballesteros began his interest in photography in Douglas High School while taking printing class and serving as the school printer of the weekly Douglas High newspaper. Not satisfied with the photos being taken for the paper, rather than complain, the determined young Tony found a Brownie and started taking the photos himself with amazing success that began his life-long love and career in photography. Since the first digital cameras, Tony has surged with the technology, now on his third Sony, the latest 24.3 megapixel SLR 650A that can fire 10 frames a second through a powerful telephoto zoom lens that makes most admirers astoundingly ask, “How’d he get that shot?”
