Sea turtle lays eggs in area of Sandy Beach
July 5, 2014
Sea turtle lays eggs in area of Sandy Beach. After laying eggs, turtle covers nest and returns to sea. A group of tourists in Rocky Point alerted municipal authorities on Thursday morning, July 3rd, of a sea turtle who had made her way out of the Sea of Cortez and onto the beach to lay eggs, before returning to the sea. The turtle appeared in front of the condo area along Sandy Beach to begin the egg laying process before then covering up the nest and returning to its natural habitat. Studies show the coasts along the California peninsula and Gulf of California are home to five of the seven species of sea turtles in the world: leatherback sea turtle, olive/pacific ridley, green sea turtle, loggerhead sea turtle (caguama), and hawksbill sea turtle.

We all know the roar of motorcycles has become a November tradition in town, but organizers of the yearly Rocky Point Rally – now entering its 15th year – are hoping bikes will also help get the year started at the 1st Kings Day Toy Run set for this weekend! With a number of local artisans already lined up, boot-stomping music, and tasty bites to be served up by culinary students at the Technological University of Puerto Peñasco (UTPP), not to mention rising temperatures and sunny skies, this should prove to be fun for all! Come on out! Jan. 9th – 6 p.m. at Banditos – Rising country star Matt Farris and good rally amigo will be back to help get things started early, and the Toy Run spirit flowing! Jan. 10th – Kings Day Toy Run Fiesta 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Plaza del Camarón Food! Music! Artists!

Many local artists will be there including: spray paint creations of Victor Alemán, photography of Tony Ballesteros, visual arts by Socorro González, jewelry of Judy Ridgway, CEDO t-shirts and gifts, ironwork of Ricardo Monjarez, recycled art by Alma Yanez, and much more! Around 1:30 p.m. gifts will be loaded up on bikes – plus in whatever other vehicles people may have – to form a short parade from Plaza del Camarón to *the Puerto Peñasco EXPO Convention Center where the local DIF will be holding their grand Kings Day gift-giving event for kids from across the community! Folks are encouraged to dress up as Kings (yes, we’re talking the Kings from the nativity scene), Santa Claus, or even angels for the Toy Run! Jan. 10th – 6 p.m. at Dukes.
