RESURFACING OF THE ROAD SOUTH TO
PUERTECITOS IS ALMOST COMPLETE
Oct. 28, 2006, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico:
Hola everyone From San Felipe. It's a beautiful day, although a trifle hot for the end of October. This morning at 9:30 a.m. it's already 90 degrees on the balcony with humidity quivering at around 22 percent, just about the same as yesterday and the day before. Early in the mornings San Felipe is quite cool, in the high 60's but as soon as the sun comes up it heats up fast.
We have a new moon so the tides are intense and today is a little cloudy so the bay, which is very high, is steel gray.
Many snowbirds are starting to arrive at San Felipe. There are lots of old familiar faces and we hear there has been some very rough weather going on in Colorado so we expect a second wave soon.
Next weekend, starting Thursday evening, is the annual San Felipe Shrimp Festival, which will run through Sunday so the vendors are preparing for that.
The big news this week is that, drum roll please, the road to Puertecitos is almost finished. Apparently only the last two miles remain to be repaired and the equipment to do that is all in place.
In case anyone is wondering why this is a big deal, for years the last 15 or so miles of the paved road down there has been a torture trek requiring the patience of Job and/or vehicles built like tanks to negotiate.
You really had to want to get to Puertecitos and points south of there.
Our source reported that the road looks pretty well constructed, about 5 inches thick, and should hold up to the nitrate trucks that traverse it. Until next time, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
