Yes, it’s that time of year again when careful focus is placed on just how many turkeys one can bring across the border. According to what we can best figure from official SENASICA/SAGARPA, this remains at 1 turkey per car …though if you’re anything like our family, you’ll have more turkeys around the table than on it. Welcome to Rocky Point for Thanksgiving Weekend! The weather is expected to be clear with highs in the low 70s and lows possibly in the 50s (according to wunderground). Best for all us turkeys to soak in the sun, art, and music in coming days, and rundown the weekend!
TRAVEL NOTE! There’s a new phase of roadwork taking place on Blvd. Juarez as you come into town (at the first stoplight) so we suggest the following routes: When headed to Sandy Beach / Cholla Bay – veer right toward Laguna del Mar (Coastal Highway) then hang a left just past the train tracks. If working your way toward Las Conchas or east side of town, take a left first stoplight onto Blvd. Josefa Ortiz (avoiding potholes wherever you can). Once on Blvd. Josefa Ortiz, turn right on Ave. Lopez Portillo which leads back to Blvd. Juarez (just south of Sam’s).
