    Trash on the beach …. A Herculean Effort

    We pick up trash on the beaches between Isla Del Mar and Laguna Shores. Closer to Isla Del Mar we get a lot of trash that might have started from the beaches at Cholla, but the vast majority is from fishing boats including lines and plastic oil jugs.

    Getting mail in Rocky Point.

    We too have used Burrito Express off and on for a few years, whenever we are primarily in Mexico for multiple month stays. We had one incident where we didn’t get any mail for about a month, and then a day after complaining about it at Burrito it all showed up in our box. Apparently misplaced...

    Getting mail in Rocky Point.

    There are two ways to do this to my knowledge. One way is to get a PO Box in Lukeville and contract with Burrito Express to make the run to the border three times a week. Packages are a pain. They must be sent the gas station and. Are extra to pick up. This year we might try a digital...

    November travel

    The rays are small. Their stings are comparable to bee stings. Wear sandals while walking out into the water. Make your lodging reservations early. Do not carry any firearms or ammunition into Mexico unless you would like to stay for 3 years. If you have any special dietary needs consider...

    November travel

    One hour waits heading south are not uncommon at the start of holiday weekends. I’ve never seen jellyfish at my beach. I would worry more about stepping on a skate (stingray).

    November travel

    The weather is close to perfect in November. Sunday on Thanksgiving weekend is usually one of the worst days to be in the line in Sonyota to cross the border at Lukeville. Some people plan to leave on Saturday as a result. Recently I‘ve seen multiple lanes open. Maybe, maybe if they have...

    Cholla Bay Kayak Fishing

    I’ve moved my Hobie Pro Angler 14 north for the summer, and I’ll be heading there soon, so you might not see me in the bay until the fall. I’ve got a little fishing gear, and fishing in the bay is part of the plan. Some days I see a lot of corvina, small halibut, and shovel nose guitar fish...

    Best border crossing between Peñasco and California?

    We have neighbors who swear by Algodones. The one time we crossed north there we had a 45 minute wait. Prior to getting our Sentri passes we’ve had plenty of 90+ minute waits at both San Louis Rio Colorado and Mexicali. Had a 45 minute wait at Tecate once. As you noticed the problem with...

    Favorite Recipe

    We cook a lot. Rather than answer your question I’ll post a few tips. Be familiar with what you can and cannot reliably find in town. When you come down for extended visits bring pantry staples and some perishables that are difficult to find locally. For us this includes many cheeses, some...

    This doesn't help tourism!

    Your potential adverse parties are tightly limiting their public comments on this, which is prudent given the implied threat of litigation. You might learn from their example, because if you do sue someone you will see these posts again. The internet can fix a lot of problems, but sometimes it...

    This doesn't help tourism!

    The Arizona Daily Sun had an article referencing the Playa Dorado dispute in 2001. https://azdailysun.com/u-s-mexico-scrutinize-land-sales-in-mexican-resort-community/article_3b0269b7-78ff-50a0-9fc3-81fb4536c5f2.html

    This doesn't help tourism!

    I know a dual citizen with a less severe but similar problem involving unimproved land in another development. He decided that getting an attorney out of San Luis Rio Colorado might move him forward, but a local attorney wasn’t a good plan.

    August border crossing.

    I lived an hour from Houston for 14 years. I know age is a factor but Puerto Peñasco in August is debilitating.

    Gasoline Shortage in Puerto Peñasco

    Pemex on Benito Juarez by Autozone had premium but not regular. Pemex at windmills had regular but not premium.

    Gasoline Shortage in Puerto Peñasco

    Pemex at the windmills got a light delivery this morning. I was able to fill the Ranger but they weren’t going to be in business for long. Speculation is that gringos leaving town on Sunday (there were a lot) all filled up because gas was cheap, and this cratered supply. Not sure how it’s...

    Gasoline Shortage in Puerto Peñasco

    Our neighbors just went to the windmill Pemex. Again no gas.

    Gasoline Shortage in Puerto Peñasco

    I just drove down Benito Juarez. I noticed two Pemex stations that had their pumps blocked off and two other stations with lines of cars a quarter mile long.

    Tucson woman accused of gambling away $5M in embezzled funds

    Brokenwave: Keeping the existing HOA with fresh leadership is by far the most efficient path forward. Some current Board members might consider stepping down as part of the healing and moving forward process. My community in Flagstaff recently went through the creation of a road district to...
