Back on the East Coast they are wearing sweaters, mittens and digging out their snow shovels. Bracing themselves for what some experts predict as an exceptionally wet and wintry season. It’s November, the next to the last month of 2015 and for those in cold states the beginning of the dreaded cold winter weather.
Here on the Sea of Cortez, we are extremely lucky–no snow shovels or winter parkas for us. No, we are waiting for November in Rocky Point. Lifting our faces up to the sun and enjoying the gorgeous daytime temps and warm air. November holds all the power.
November is a magnificent time to be on the sandy beaches of Rocky Point. Goodbye humidity and say Hello to beautiful days, indoor outdoor weather when maybe all you’ll need is a little hoodie to walk the beach at night. November is a powerful month. There’s something about others freezing and complaining about frigid air; that lends a little power to those of us basking in the sun in perfect temperatures.
Some of the best events happen in November in Mexico. Weddings are scheduled for the obscenely terrific weather, friends plan weekend trips to get away hoping to capture one last second of summertime and the sparkling sea is great for sailing, fishing and boating.
Here are 4 tips ways to stay warm in November.
1. Bask in the sun. Yes, take a blanket lay out on the warm caramel sand and bask. Picture those in wet snow and shoveling sidewalks, trust me you will feel warm.
2. Have your turkey at the beach. It’s a great time to be thankful, and with everything going on in the world we here, have a lot to be thankful for. For those in Phoenix or Tucson, take a road trip south of the border and give thanks.
3. Shop for Holiday gifts in Mexico- skip Black Friday and head to the shops in Rocky Point. Buy local. Whether you go the Malecon or the Cholla Mall area, nicknamed Rodeo Drive, you are sure to find bargains that would rival any Black Friday specials. Do your Christmas shopping early and support the local community. Share a little Mexico with your friends and family and bring them a gift handcrafted from the local community.
4. Donate your time or goods to a local community organization in need. There are many in the area looking for assistance. From helping the elderly, orphanage or animals. Find out the power of charity by giving of yourself. The Santa Claus Club donates toys, bicycles, clothing to those in need. Go to santaclause a non-profit organization which donates 100% of all monetary contributions, food, clothing and donations. If you have items in the states to donate, they will even arrange for transportation to bring it down to Mexico.
