This weekend marks the first full moon of 2014, and throws us right into the MLK, Jr. Holiday. Work on the Home Port is advancing with more than 100 meters of rock fill going out to sea, and there’s plenty of roadwork going on just about everywhere you look in town. This is important to keep in mind so as to look for detours or share your favorite short-cut (Blvd. Juarez is closed from just past Sam’s to the baseball field).
Sandy Beach Resort area and toward Cholla Bay: When driving from Sonoyta, take a right at the traffic circle (leading to new Coastal Highway) and then turn left onto the new road leading straight to the resorts. Continuing around the traffic circle leads to the road out to Mayan Palace.
Las Conchas area and town: At the first stoplight, turn left onto Blvd. Josefa Ortiz and continue South (watch for potholes). This will eventually link up with Blvd. Fremont, left turn toward Las Conchas or right turn back into town.
Now that everyone is here safely, let’s run down the weekend!
