Damn, so Tuesday is the new Monday?! That's crazy. That many people decided to stay and return Tuesday and still had to wait?! On Sunday I also saw a lot of Cali and Texas plates as well. I left Phoenix Sunday morning at 6am, RP by 940... On the way down I was trying to judge the amount of traffic going North as I was planning on returning the same day and was hoping Sunday wasn't the new Monday. There definitely was a steady flow North on Sunday but they must have been getting them through the border because when I came back through at 330pm with my CENTER CONSOLE there was no wait.... WAIT HUH.... ?! More on that to follow.... This weekend I felt the Sonoyta police presence was non existent although on the way home I did see they had someone pulled over but I turned on the non existent short cut street that you're not supposed to go on and couldn't see if they were Mexican or American plated... Left Phoenix at 6am and was back in Central Phoenix at 6pm... Two or three trips ago we went and looked at the public beach entrance that Broken told us about. Surprised to see that the last two weekends there weren't any cars in the lot. I wonder if it's not really known about yet??? I can't wait for the MI PLAYA scenario where there's fully loaded diapers floating next to you while catching some tasty rays...We crossed back into the US at noon today, there was a 20 min wait, 2 lanes were open. CBP agent took our passports
scanned them and sent us on our way. Far left lane was making cars go thru the X-RAY Monster. We picked the right lane of course.
We were supposed to go home on Tues, glad we didn't, the line was close to 2 miles long most of the morning and afternoon.
We saw one Policia at the red cross stop at the south end of town. As we crossed over the hill where speed limit drops to 40kph,
we saw that Policia hung a U-turn to the side of the road to face us as if he was shooting radar. (like they have working radar guns, LOL)
Well since we were doing 35kph and the 5 cars behind us too, he didn't have any easy marks. We saw another Policia further north.
Lot's of people going south many cars had Cali and Texas plates, on a Wed? Wow
Probably some of the best May weather I seen in Cholla in years, It's just starting to get warm, humidity still isn't a big problem.
After spending 19 days there, we watched the water warm from a Brrrr 71 to a not bad 76.
There's a public pay beach in between the Esmerelda and Sonoran Sun resorts, $5 per car, nice beach about 150 ft wide,
with porta potty's and you get to experience all the vendors the people at the resorts do. Jet ski rentals, banana boat rides,
put you name on a grain of rice, hat's imitation Cuban cigars etc.
Look for the chain link fence with a parking sign in the gate.
I got to meet forum member Idyllwild and his wife, nice people.
