Finding Paradise

I hope that you have had and are having a great summer. I decided for the first time to hang around Peñasco for the summer with a couple of vacation breaks. Three friends and I went on a Baltic Cruise. Cruise and land tours were great, weather not so great, but nothing could really spoil our time there. We saw a lot of beautiful architecture and art.

Well Ramon has nothing to do with those two restaurants any longer. He has a new place! It is the first full service restaurant on Rodeo Drive!

There was a Christmas concert by the municipal orchestra. There was a presentation of the Nutcracker by Destiny Dance Academy.

We’re off! That we would be the Peñasco Payasos, (clowns) so named on a previous road trip. We had four new travelers this time who named themselves the frogies, after Kermit, their mascot! As before, we travel with Russ and Naomi of Peñasco Recreation. This time we set off for the City of Álamos in Southeastern Sonora.

Coming Home Well after being gone for three months it was nice to get back to my piece of paradise (Playa Encanto) within the paradise that is Puerto Peñasco. I came home to a mess after the big storm, but still so happy to be...
