Well it is supposed to get warmer as we approach May and June. This last week it is noticeable. The night time temps have risen at least 5 F – it’s now 55-60 F when I check the thermometer in the morning. The sun is much further to the east and even with DST, rising earlier and earlier and setting later. Daytime temps are on the warm side. No more need for jackets of any kind during the day. I would guess we are close to 80F in the shade. Of course, La Paz and Los Cabos are much hotter and will continue to be so.
The ocean is still cool, leading to many foggy mornings and some foggy afternoons. There hasn’t been much surf on this side at all. The East Cape is doing better in that regard. In fact the ocean has been downright calm most of the last 1-2 weeks – safe enough for swimming off the Las Tunas beach. That’s a rarity!
Today was the Palapa Society’s “Dia del Tambo” when the kids paint trash barrels that are then sold to raise money for the PS’s programs. I have some photos but they will have to wait until tomorrow.
Lots of winter time residents have left town or are preparing to leave town. There are less events happening. The seasonal slow down is beginning.
And we are affected by the economic issues in the US. While we have lots of daytrippers from Los Cabos checking out TS, it seems that overnight tourists just aren’t here in the normal numbers. I know that our vacation rental is having one of it’s poorer seasons.
Ah, one other thing. I should know better but I don’t always take a camera with me on my daily morning beach walk. Last Tuesday I regretted that choice. There was a dead squid on the beach. It was newly washed up on the shore, still had its eyes and wasn’t chewed up at all. The body was about 3 feet long, the head and tentacles another 1-2 feet. It was big! Wish I had a photo to share with you all. I returned the next morning with camera but alas, there was no squid to be found.
