A trip across the Mexican Border

I have been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years celebrated last June. He is my best friend and whom I love dearly. We have done everything together. I was lucky to have two honeymoons. One was a trip out west driving to Glacier and Yellowstone national parks. The second was to Hawaii and four of the islands. We celebrated this year with a statication in Wisconsin as we were selling our home. But this week we are celebrating our trip to Hawaii with trip to Puerta Penasco  staying at the Penasco del sol. 

We began our journey on Sunday traveling south about a four hour drive. We came to the border crossing and a RV in front of us was being inspected. When it was our turn we got the green light to go thru without questioning. On the drive before the border we came across two border patrol inspection points, but for the other side. As we were traveling on Sunday the traffic was quite light. Our plan was to park our car at our hotel and walk to most places. We found our hotel without issue using google map app GPS. Our hotel is beautiful right on the beach front and we have a water view along with pool view. It was cloudy and cool the day we arrived, but today sunny and in the 70’s with gentle breeze. 

Penasco del sol is very nice with employees quite warm and gracious. We are on the second flour and room is quite comfortable. This hotel you cannot bring in food or drink to support their labor jobs. 

We ate supper across the street at Max’s. Food was excellent, however it was cash only. I had the Gorgonzola schrimp fettuccine which was good along with tortilla soup. Dan had schrimp /steak kabab also good. We had happy hour margarita at our hotel.


Today we decided to walk the beach. It was low tide when we left. We got as far a Sonoran and a a corona at a local bar and walked back. The water, waves, birds and in the distant schrimping boats we’re mesmerizing. 

Supper was a our hotel another meal of schrimp. Tequila schrimp and again tortilla soup.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day…wait til you see what happens….
