Post eclipse! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Welcome back, Boo!  This week sponsored by Boo Bar in the Old Port

Monday’s eclipse was viewed by many folks in Puerto Peñasco, with pictures and video out of the Pinacate Biosphere Reserve as well as from many a friendly photog or two. Though of course we weren’t in line for totality, the anticipation was palpable – or possibly that was also the excitement of families sending kiddos back to school.  We’re about a week from Labor Day, so let’s get to it and run down the weekend!
