Sponsored this week by the Rocky Point 360 Business Directory – Are you in it?
Here we are, right in the middle of what is commonly known as “la cuesta de enero”, or rather a possibly rough January after spending on parties, presents, and festivities for the Holidays. Increases in gas prices aren’t helping though maybe it’s time to work on healthy resolutions for the New Year by biking, walking, etc… and save on gas all at the same time. It’s a little chilly out there, so if you go out for that bike ride or walk on the beach be sure to keep warm. Let’s run down the weekend!
