Sails up! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

playa-bonita Sails up! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!Sponsored this week by Playa Bonita Resort – home of the Piñata Regatta

Rocky Point and surrounding areas have spent the last week drying off and cleaning up after the passage of tropical storm Rosa, and now sights are on Sergio brewing in the Pacific – though much further south.  There’s plenty going on, and the weather has taken a turn for near perfect, yet let’s keep a watch for possible showers from Sergio – and run down the weekend – oh and a little seagull tell’s us Manny’s re-re-opens this weekend!
