Out to sea! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

With the passing of Mexican Independence Day, mid-September in Puerto Peñasco generally means shrimp boats will soon be heading out to sea for the season’s catch. It also means the humidity switch should soon be flicked off as we head into some of the best weather of the year. Well, Fall officially starts on Monday, Sept. 23rd, go figure.  Time to get out and enjoy!  Let’s run down the weekend!
