Not much to worry about, but in the spirit of the hurricane season (which isn’t officially over until the end of November) Tropical Depression Kiko is churning the ocean south of us. He was a tropical storm earlier today and he isn’t moving fast so we should be fine. Just his being there though is causing an increase in humidity.
Finally, I don’t believe I have mentioned that the weather has turned cooler, much cooler, but only at night. In my trailer, it’s been under 70 F the last few mornings. Days are still hot in the sun, better in the shade. The ocean is warm. I was talking today with Heriberto Parra (junior) and he agrees that this has been the coolest summer he can recall. I have been here 11 summers and I believe he has lived his entire 20+ years here. Global climatic change (not necessarily warming) is a real thing here in Baja Sur.
The shrimpers are still out there. Yesterday I counted 8 dead pelicans on the beach at Las Tunas. I guess they got tangled up in the shrimper’s nets or lines.
The olive ridley turtles continue to hatch on a nearly daily basis. Turtle release are at the nursery in Las Tunas around sunset. New nests are being found nightly. It is a banner turtle release season!
