Good morning peeps!  We had a hot one yesterday and lots of big surfing waves – well, maybe not surfing but supping I’m sure!  The waves were rolling in and the water (while I was there) was almost to the wall.  There were folks in the water, but with the strong waves, the silt and sand from the bottom of the Sea rolls into the shore and gives the appearance of dirty water.  However, if you look a bit further out, the water is green and then in another photo, the water starts to turn blue.  I love the Sea of Cortez – it’s one of a kind really.   Thank you Seaside Susie for letting me know about the photos of the Bobcat Ed Friend had taken.  I’ve found the originals and they are now viewable on yesterday’s column.  Photo by Kat Hammontre.

Good morning everyone.  Another Monday has rolled around and the month of August is just about gone, which means by October, our summer will be gone!  I love the summers here; I know it can get pretty hot and humid, but I like it.  It’s been a while since I’ve written but I’m back.  Thank you to Carolyn, for her Baja Belle’s Diaries.  Carolyn has a place at El Dorado Ranch and Rosarito.  And, of course, thank you Sam and Darryl for your stories.  It’s given me a bit of a break to help heal my toe and other matters.  We never did get the storm we thought we would, which is fine by me.  Mexicali certainly got hit as well as Calexico.  I thought for sure we were going to get hit, but we missed the bullet this time.  I haven’t really been out of the house this weekend, other than to go to Calimax or the drug store and occasionally venturing outside to warm up.  I don’t like air conditioning and I would rather just sit and sweat than blow that nasty air into my lungs and I’m always cold anyway.  I did go three years without it and it was miserable, but that was years ago and I think I’ve acclimated pretty well.  Photo by Kat Hammontre.
