We headed down to Mexico twice since our last post. On Thursday 3/1 Janet, the manager of the gift shop in the visitor center, invited us to dinner at her house in Sonoyta. Janet and a friend fixed 10 of us sopas, which are english muffin sized corn shells filled with cheese, meat and vegetables in a broth. The food and company were great, but I forgot my camera.
Last Wednesday 3/7, one of the volunteers, Anita, who lives in Ajo took Sherri and I and another couple down to Puerto Penasco. Puerto Penasco on the Sea of Cortez, was a sleepy fishing/tourist town on our last visit 19 years ago. It is now much busier and sports high rise resorts. Many refer to it as Arizona's Beach since it is only a 3 1/2 hour drive from Tucson or Phoenix. Since we went down on a Wednesday we saw fewer crowds. Our first stop was the beach where a shrimp boat was passing by, surrounded by seagulls. The next photo looks north toward the resorts.
