September 2012 is here!

We made it through another humid August here where the desert meets the sea of Cortes!.  Although the highs here in the town of Peñasco only reach into the mid nineties whereas places like Phoenix are over 100 degrees, it feels much hotter here.  The relative humidity is super high in August and the first part of September.  Theres only a few options to beat this heat.
1. Stay inside where the a/c is on
2. Grab an ice chest and head to the ocean.

Some of the folks who live here dont have a/c so option 2 is their best bet.  They flock to the ocean with kids in tow at least every Friday Saturday and Sunday.  The ocean provides immediate relief and it is a lot of fun too!  This pic was taken Sept 2nd 2012 at the head of Cholla Bay.

Other folks have their own ideas of how to cool down. Instead of cooling down the outside of their body, they prefer to cool down from the inside out like this group of guys at JJ's Cantina on Sunday.  Whatever way you decide it it sure to bring some relief.  The heat this year will be all gone by the 3rd or 4th week of September.  But by January we will all be saying "man I wish it was August again"

Be cool wherever you are.

Have fun and come see us in your favorite beach town in Mexico!
Salud!  Russ

One of our favorite seasons of the year is -----summer.

Yes its hot and can get a bit sticky but if you know how you can stay pretty cool.

One morning we decided that it was time to put the jrt ski in and make some needed repairs that had to be done on the water.  So we drove from our house 10 minutes to the local marina in town.  We put her in the water and lifted the hood and with in a few minutes several young men came over and asked how they could help us.  I was totally impressed when they jumped right in to help fix a rather un-obvious (to me) cooling problem.  After a few minutes we put it to the test.  This pic is Naomi cruising at high speeds to make sure all is well.  It was.  What a great day of riding.

Naomi hitting it hard!
Later we decided to crash on the beach around sunset and grill some locally purchased lobsters.  No they dont come from here exactly but the are available.

Life is good!
