Dig in! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

intersticial-rp360- ad rprThis weekend rundown sponsored by RPR Mexico featuring rentals @ Sonoran Sea

Hello, August!  Our usually heavy summer humidity led to a burst of excitement last Saturday, or rather a thunder/lightning storm for the ages and a douse of rain across Puerto Peñasco. The wind had its way with many a roof while the rain made itself known along city streets, turning Peñasco into a maze of canals and lakes…most of which are visions of the past (except for a pot hole here or there).

August means it’s almost time for kids to head back to school, so keep your eye out for deals if you’d like to donate any school supplies. There’s plenty of programs around town putting together “school stuff” for kids, if you’d like more info as to where to go/who to contact please drop us a note (info@rockypoint360.com)

Looks like local universities are taking a tasty approach to heading back to classes, so let’s run down the weekend…and grab a fork!
