Spring is springing! After two incredibly busy weekends of Spring Break, we’re in for one more before a short lull and then…. SEMANA SANTA!
Yes, roadwork continues around town though we’re over the pescado happy to report the left turn at Blvd. Juarez & Calle 13 is once again in operation, plus it appears the stoplight on Calle 13 has been put on flashing yellow and red through this busy traffic season. Another thing of note is the pouring of concrete by the anchor as you veer toward the Old Port (take detour by movie theater) – parking lots available so you can park and walk to KaffeeHaus, Latitude, etc. By March 28th the goal is to have the entrance to the Old Port fully open, as well as one lane on Blvd. Juarez when coming into town off the Sonoyta – Puerto Peñasco highway. Now that we’ve all managed to get around town one way or another, let’s go ahead and run down the weekend!
