POPPA NEUTRINO SEAGOING RAFT
SAILS DOWN MEXICO'S SEA OF CORTEZ
April 2, 2005, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico Town Report:
Hola everyone from San Felipe where right now it is overcast and very muggy. The temperature is 76 degrees and the humidity about 43%, although it feels damper than that. The sky was clear this morning, but developed more clouds over the day and is now completely overcast. Yesterday and the day before we had some pretty high winds which gave us WAVES in the bay and so much dust in the air that people were sneezing all over the place. I had a real sweeping job to do on the balcony earlier.
It was really nice to see a lot of people in the water at San Felipe this afternoon. The banana boats were all over the place too. Spring is finally here. San Felipe is recovering from Semana Santa and the first two waves of Spring Break. The next one arrives on Monday. The vendors on the street in front of the bookstore seemed to really be doing well. My friend's wife has been doing a very brisk hair-braiding business on the San Felipe malecon, which is great. She is saving money for a trip south to visit her father who is very old.
Poppa Neutrino's raft took off on Monday on its cruise down the Sea of Cortez. We got up early and watched it chug out of the entrance to the San Felipe marina. It looked really wonderful against the sunrise. We wished David fair weather and calm seas and had a celebration breakfast at the coffee shop. We could see the tiny dot of his craft as it approached the bend around the southern point of the bay.
The tourists continue to come to San Felipe, as well as many many people interested in property here. San Felipe, Mexico, is growing up, and out. Until next week, Vaya con Dios, from the bookstore by the bay.
