Cholla Bay 4 Life
As many of you know I have an affinity and strong affiliation with Cholla Bay. Went down last weekend and found that they have officially closed off Tucson Beach to vehicles by placing cemented metal poles with a locked chain at the top of the little road down to TB. First thought was that it may have been Mr Brown but was later told by the GODFATHER of CB, Lucky Chucky that the Mexican government came in and fixed the road and then chained it off after the complete meltdown known as SEMANA SANTA. Apparently, the loitering and panga traffic along with a billion cars getting stuck at high tide during Semana Santa was enough to warrant change. I was told that it was not the CB HOA decision. I really dont understand this. Tucson Beach has been open to vehicles as long as I can remember. At least since 98. For me this is a huge disappointment. Two reasons. As many of you know I am physically disabled. Tucson Beach allowed me to enjoy a section of beach albeit very small without having to walk a far distance with a walker being partially paralyzed from the waist down. It allowed me to enjoy CB as I have all these years in a little seclusion. It is absolutely impossible for me to access any other beach in Rocky Point unless I can drive my truck down onto the beach which is why CB is so convenient for me. It allows me to access the water for my kayak and jet ski by driving my truck right up to it. There really is no other place that I can utilize like this which makes it nearly the only place I can hang out. Second point. Getting older now, the BIG 35 I find myself wanting to enjoy different things while I'm down which mainly consists of hanging out in CB at Tucson Beach, paddling the kayak around, taking the ski out, beach fishing while sitting in a chair, listening to music while letting the DOG run and swim around the SOUTHERLY WIND protected Tucson Bay... It was an absolute perfect place for me, the only place. Getting older, it's Tucson Beach during the day, dinner and maybe a drink. Have been in bed by 10pm a couple of trips on a Saturday night... Sadly, this closer ends all of that for me. There is absolutely no way for me to get down there now. Not too much fun hanging out in the rocks by the boat ramp at JJ's... Really upset about this. I figured this is why they weren't fixing the 8 foot trench down the middle of that road for the past 6 months but I actually enjoyed it because hardly anyone could get down there and with my truck it was no issue so it had been nice having that area less crowded. Gone now. Just another way to get bent over and screwed by life.
