Now that the cruise ship has come and gone, and come and gone…set to return on Jan. 31st to embark on its third voyage out of Puerto Peñasco, we’ve been treated to our own “treasures of the Sea of Cortez” this week in the form of remarkable bioluminescent waves spotted in the area of Las Conchas, not to mention whale watching opportunities are getting close. Who knows if we’ll continue to be treated to the mysterious glow under the night sky, but there’s stuff to do while we ponder that possibility…. Let’s run down the weekend and take a look ahead!
