A couple of times a year, the animal activists of Todos Santos import vets from the US to do a massive low cost/free spay and neuter clinic. It helps keep the stray animal population down and that’s a good thing. They were here on November 11 and I clicked a few shots.
Barbara Perkins of La Cañada del Diablo gratiously allowed the use of her premises for the work.
For once the swell arrived on time and the conditions were as predicted. Big stuff. Strong water. Lots of muscle. About 10-15 guys were in the water. The rest watched from the safety of shore. Here’s a teaser with more to come as soon as El Calendario de Todos Santos for Dec/Jan is put to bed.
Double overhead, sometimes triple. Scary large outside sets. No one was hurt. I didn’t see any broken boards. It was a good day.
I think I posted a while back that Rodrigo from Ferreteria Romex told me the money had been approved to pave the dirt road on the el otro lado, from the school almost all the way to the bulldozer in Fabulous Las Tunas. Still no movement on that front but today, Telmex workers were pulling very large cables through the underground tubing that they placed during the late summer. We might be getting close to phone service in Fabulous Las Tunas. Although whether the wire will be underground or not remains a subject of pure conjecture.
Elena Moreno reports that money has been approved for the highway bypass around Todos Santos. This is great news as it means semis will no longer have to come through the center of town. Exactly where the bypass will start and end is up in the air. Someone must have the answer, but I can’t find out. She goes on to say that money was also approved to continue the four lane highway work from La Paz past the Y in San Pedro and to continue the four lane from Cabo San Lucas to Migrino.
Yikes, before you know it we will have a four lane highway from Cabo San Lucas all the way to La Paz. Whether it will me a safer road system or not remains to be seen. In Los Cabos, the four lane allowed people to drive faster and more recklessly and it is now the most dangerous highway in the area.
Well that’s what Surfline.com says (commonly referred to as “surflies.com”) but they could be correct this time. The swell is huge, 9 feet +, and the conditions should be great. High tide is in the early hours of the morning 6 am or so and low tide in the early afternoon 1 pm or so. If the winds behave, the mix is near perfect. Everyone is way stoked! I’ll be out there with the big lenses and with luck will capture some memorable images. Oh, the big pulse is set to begin midday Wednesday and peak on Thursday.
It did finally stop raining on Saturday. The aftermath is still not pretty. Dirt roads really don’t deal very well with massive rains. The mud is mostly dry but some spots still remain with standing water.
Of course the grand opening at Salon Leo’s felt the pain. The road in front of them was solid mud and had cars parked every which way. I didn’t attend but passed by at 9 pm and there were a lot of people milling about, including a few police in uniform. I heard it was very well attended and the noise didn’t disturb the neighborhood as much as it could have.
