SAN FELIPE: HOT SUMMER
WEATHER, FEW VISITORS IN TOWN
June 16, 2006, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, town report from San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
Hola everyone from San Felipe where it is hot, 95 degrees, and very humid at 48 percent. Yesterday it seemed a little cooler at San Felipe because there was a wonderful breeze coming off the water.
Today it is relatively still here. The bay of San Felipe is an amazing pearly blue and the sky is that kind of hazy that usually is associated with the state of Mississippi in August.
There are lots of people in the water, even though right now the tide is halfway out. But other than that the town of San Felipe is pretty dead. Many of the curio stores are closed. The only people acting at all energetically are the seemingly un-escapable, unstoppable, unabashed, ever-jocular troops of realtors who stride relentlessly through the all but empty streets, impervious to the heat, humidity and just about everything else, cell phones clamped to their ears and brandishing laptops and brochures. But I guess it's progress of a sort.
We of the bookstore are closing this Sunday and will not re-open until the first of September. It's been a fascinating season and we hope that all of you will have a joyful and safe summer. Until the fall, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
