Ahhhh, Summer is behind us…well almost…and one of the best times of the year is closer to be upon us here in Rocky Point…FALL! It is an amazing time in Rocky Point in the fall. The hot days are behind us, replaced with warm temperatures and cooler nights. Air conditioning becomes more of an option than a mandatory need. Jackets, sweatshirts and long pants actually start to make an appearance again around town especially at night. The Sea of Cortez remains especially inviting as water temperatures usually run 2-3 months behind air temperature so the sea will remain warm for months to come.
As I am writing this, I just finished packing for my second trip to Aruba this month. On my first trip with my family, I had plenty of time to relax, enjoy and reflect on what makes our beach and town here in Rocky Point so special. So, I created a short list of cool things to do which hopefully will inspire you to spend more time here at the beaches in Rocky Point. After all, LIFE’S A BEACH!!

1-Search for dolphins… (or delfines as we say in Mexico)…Whether you are on a boat, in your condo or hotel, or simply strolling along the beach, the dolphins in Rocky Point are plentiful and beautiful to watch.

2-Take a drive up to Inspiration Point (Competition Hill) and take a short hike to the peak of the mountain where you can see 270 degree views of the sea! THIS IS A MUST DO for those who have not experienced it…great photo opps!

3-Rent a banana boat for a couple hours and have them bar hop, oh I mean restaurant hop, along the coast to various establishments. This, I promise, is hysterically fun. Word to the wise, leave your sunglasses at home…the Master of Disaster lost his Michael Kors this way…but hey, you got to give back sometimes…oh well!

4-Meet new friends…Take a long, relaxing stroll on the beach. Smile to others as you pass and say hello. You never know who has been awaiting your greeting…a new friend? A new girlfriend or boyfriend? A new business venture? The possibilities are endless and only YOU control your destiny.

5-Go on a seashell and sea glass hunt…The shells in Rocky Point are so abundant and so are the revelers who help to create some awesome sea glass with their broken bottles. You will be amazed at the collections of shells and sea glass and art work you can make with them. My good friend Cathy P created an awesome sea glass bowl with layered colors that looks fab!

6-Try your hand at photography…The beach scenes and sunsets here in Rocky Point are world class. Be the envy of your friends and show them what talent you have…a matted sunset photo or beach scene with a tiki frame is an awesome way to capture your moment!

7-Relax and let loose…Allow your mind to wander and allow yourself to be grateful for all the blessings in your life. Maybe it is time for a change…or what I like to say, “An adjustment”. Whatever the case, be most thankful that you are in the best place of all…ROCKY POINT!

As a wise person once said, YOU CAN SHAKE THE SAND FROM YOUR SHOES, BUT NOT YOUR SOUL! Happy September my favorite peeps!
