Happy July to everyone! The weather has been fabuloso in Rocky Point! With temperatures hitting record highs near 120 degrees in Arizona, Rocky Point continues to deliver amazing weather and of course its friendly vibe. As I write this from my balcony here in Rocky Point and having just left the searing Arizona summer heat and of course its air conditioned homes, I am thrilled to say the cool breezes and amazing temps here do not require AC…yet. Now is the time to grab your beach bag and enjoy the incredible days and nights we have come to love here in Rocky Point.
On June 8th, the concert weekend was kicked off by none other than our own Pashley & Amigos at Banditos. The place was packed and the band never fails to deliver with an amazing performance that always involves you, “the Amigos”. FUN TIMES…Pashley & Amigos!! The festivities continued throughout town with bands playing all over and the thousands and thousands of revelers attending the events. June 10th was the official start of the Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers concert with numerous warm up bands that truly was an amazing experience. If you have not been back for the show in a while or have never come, this is a Rocky Point MUST! For those of you attending, well I hope you recovered faster than thou…LOL!!
I was lucky enough to be asked to help out and bar tend the concert for the group putting on the concessions at the concert. Thank you Becky, Morgan, Fiona and Juan…my partners in fun who bar tended along with me at the VIP tent. It was truly a fun-packed experience especially our little jigs that we did when the “Rocky Point Special” was ordered! You all made the weekend most memorable! The evening could not have been possible without the hard work, countless hours and dedication of the Poturalski family and the loads of volunteers (69 and counting) who made the weekend unfold flawlessly. And, certainly last but not least, WOW…the bands were simply incredible! The musicians really showed up to impress and they did indeed IMPRESS.
Our July 4th weekend and beyond promises to deliver another fun-filled month of action packed choices for us all. Or…you can simply do one of the best things about Rocky Point, grab a beach chair, your best friend and your favorite beverage and kick back and enjoy the sounds (waves crashing), sights (sea, sun, children playing etc.) and scents (nothing beats the salty, seaside aromas). Your dream vacation is at your feet!
A great friend reminded me recently here in Rocky Point that true friends are always here for you. They await your arrival like a sailor coming in from a long voyage from afar. They do not judge, rather they nurture. They do not slander, rather they praise. And, they do what every great friend should do…make you feel welcome and thank you for being a special part of their lives. So, let us all reach out this month and welcome a new friend into your lives and best of all…Welcome them to the best beach town anywhere…ROCKY POINT!!
Until next month, let the warmth of your soul shine through to all those around you. You never know who really needs YOU now!!
“My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea, and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.”― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
