This week’s rundown sponsored by El Tapeo Wine Bar
As I drove down from Phoenix on Wednesday, the radio proclaimed it was the official end to the monsoon season. In Puerto Peñasco, as we head into October this usually means we’re gearing up for the best weather of the year – so if the end of monsoon season means it’s taking the humidity away, I’m all for it! Let’s get to it and see what’s up in Rocky Point! It’s the Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!
