HOT FALL WEATHER AND SHRIMP FESTIVAL IN FULL SWING
Oct. 4, 2006, Catalina Meders, Title Company Bookstore, San Felipe, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
Hola everyone from San Felipe where the temperature is refusing to go down, again. Today at about noon it's 90 degrees on the balcony with the humidity at 28 percent. Last night the low was 60 degrees, but it's the 4th of November for cat's sake.
Actually it's super weather for the San Felipe Shrimp Festival which is in full flow. Tonight will be party time on the malecon, as was last night. Many gringos staggering up the stairs for coffee this morning are looking more than a little green but are still game.
I could hear the music pounding until way after 2 a.m. and I was inside my house which is relatively far from the malecon, which gives you an idea.
I got a visit yesterday from an acquaintance who has been a long time resident of Punta Banda over on the Pacific side of Baja. We got to talking about public beach access and he reminded me that in Punta Banda there are alley ways every so often that run between properties and enable people to get to the beach.
I don't know why that doesn't seem to be happening here at San Felipe. Does anyone know the actual law or statute that refers to this? Is it universal for all of Mexico? I can't seem to find anyone who will definitely commit to an answer for this. It seems very unfair that so many people will have trouble getting to enjoy our beautiful beaches. Until next time, vaya con Dios from the bookstore by the bay.
