Fall continues its march through Puerto Peñasco, though late summer weather seems to be the norm. I’ve got to say, the Sea of Cortez looked so amazingly inviting this morning – a pane of glass with reflections of shrimp boats, paddle-boarders, jet skis, and sail boats – what a fabulous time to be in Rocky Point! Following the grand arts festival last weekend, the town is at it again with music ready to rock over the Old Port and the Bay – so let’s run down the weekend!
- Overpass construction continues just north of town. Remain alert to short detours.
- First intersection when entering town is open (Blvd Juarez / Blvd Ocaña / Blvd Josefa) though remain alert to road work on Blvd Josefa – and odd detours – if heading that route.
