It’s beginning to look a lot like…. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

capones-rundownbannerThis weekend rundown sponsored by our amigos from Capone’s

‘Twas three weeks before Christmas and all through the docks dolphins swam to and fro and pelicans flocked. Lights were strewn across the plaza with the greatest of care, in hopes Santa Claus and los Reyes would find them there. Shrimp boats were nestled back into the port, while the sun set in the west just past the resorts….

Enjoy the Weekend Rundown!

TRAVEL NOTE! There’s a new phase of roadwork taking place on Blvd. Juarez as you come into town (at the first stoplight) so we suggest the following routes: When headed to Sandy Beach / Cholla Bay – veer right toward Laguna del Mar (Coastal Highway) then hang a left just past the train tracks. If working your way toward Las Conchas or east side of town, take a left first stoplight onto Blvd. Josefa Ortiz (avoiding potholes wherever you can). Once on Blvd. Josefa Ortiz, turn right on Ave. Lopez Portillo which leads back to Blvd. Juarez (just south of Sam’s).
