Night to Shine Foundation, Tim Tebow sponsor, First in Mexico

Tim Tebow’s Foundation, Night to Shine appeared in Puerto Penasco Friday night!    Offering a very special evening to local young people who have special needs, the Night to Shine is an exciting, lovely celebration much like a prom.   The Night to Shine shows the love of Jesus Christ.   The goal is to make each person feel special and celebrate their life in a Beautiful, Glamorous evening.

The Family of God church hosted the event,  providing a beautiful venue with food, dancing, and activities for all participants.   The evening begins as guests ride in a limosine, walk the red carpet under a gorgeous lighted arch, with the paparazzi snapping photos, just like Hollywood!   Guests and their chaperone will be treated to a lovely sit down dinner.    The decor and tables are dazzling with a glittering star theme.    Followed by music and dancing for the guests and entertainment and various activities for the parents to enjoy.

The purpose of the evening is to spread of love of Jesus Christ among the guests, reminding all of us that we are each created in His image and loved completely by our Holy Father.     Night to Shine Foundation was developed by the famed Tim Tebow, former NFL quarterback who wanted to share the Love of Christ with young people who sometimes do not have the opportunity to attend the prom and other social activities.   His Foundation provides funds for the decorations and food to make the evening so Lovely and enjoyable.   he is also shown in a video message encouraging all to enjoy this special night.

Mexico’s First Night to Shine

This is the first time the Tim Tebow Foundation has given a grant for Night to Shine in Mexico.   We hope the Night to Shine is the first of many evenings offered to Special Needs Young People in Mexico.   We all need an opportunity to feel like a queen or king, and this event makes it happen!   There is a balloon drop as guests are crowned King and Queen!

Guests receive a gift bag with special treats to take home.   Hopefully they  also take with them many great memories of a splendid evening spent with many friends.

Sonora Arizona Commission to be in Puerto Penasco

The Sonora Arizona Commission will be held in Puerto Penasco, aka Rocky Point Mexico beginning  November 30.     As Jorge Valdez, Municipal Economic Development Director of Puerto Penasco, states, the Commission meeting should encourage greater economic growth in this region.   We hope to see an agreement between AZ Governor Doug Ducey, and Sonora’s Governor Claudia Pavlovich that will describe an ongoing working relationship.

There are multiple meetings during the Sonora Arizona Commission, with a Real Estate meeting that typically is of interest to local realtors.  Purchasing property in Mexico is of interest to many US citizens.   Buying beachfront property on the Sea of Cortez is a privilege many Americans enjoy.   For more information on buying property in Mexico, see the website

We are hoping for an update to the Home Port Construction in Rocky Point as a result of the meetings, which begin on November 30 and last through Dec 1.   This would be amazing news for Rocky Point, as this would be the only Home Cruise Port to be built in Mexico.   With cruisers coming from Arizona, New Mexico, California,  and all the Southwestern states of the US, as well as people from Sonora Mexico, this will be a terrific port of departure.

Cruising the Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez is a fabulous cruise destination by itself.    With an abundance of Sea Life and cultural ports emphasizing some of the quaint smaller ports in Mexico, cruisers can also enjoy access to cruises that head toward the Pacific.   One of our favorite ports was Laredo, a small Colonial city with  amazing people, culture, crafts, and food.   Another favorite port on our Sea of Cortez cruise was Topalabompo which afforded us the opportunity to take a train tour up to the Copper Canyon.   Larger than the US Grand Canyon, the Copper Canyon was beautiful and the indigenous people were friendly and talented, showing us their native dances and crafts.

Cool Temps still in Rocky Point

Want to find some cool temps with ocean breezes below 90?   Rocky Point is still sporting temps in the 80s and the pleasant breezes are really being enjoyed by many tourists, out on the beaches and near the pools.   The Sea of Cortez is warming up, but still a refreshing temperature.   It feels just about right, in contrast to those freezing beaches in California!   The cool temps in Rocky Point can ensure a great vacation for your family.

We were thrilled to arrive in Puerto Penasco, aka Rocky Point this past week, to find the temperature gauge in our car to be going down, down, down, from 118 to 85 when we reached Rocky Point!   What a thrill to be able to sit outside again and enjoy our morning coffee, lunch and evening  happy hour.   We thought our fun was over when we hit 118 in Phoenix, where it felt like a blast furnace when you walked out the door.    The temperature was actually painful when embarking on any chores outside in Phoenix.   Who needs chores when there are so many fun activities in Rocky Point?   Be sure to check out  for more ways to play in Mexico.

While we know that the humidity will keep climbing, we are sure taking advantage of the pleasant breezes.   The beaches are packed, with tourists from AZ, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California and many families from Mexico too.   The Sea of Cortez has become Arizona’s closest ocean beach and the abundance of Sea Life makes it so enjoyable to walk the beach and search the tide pools for all kinds of sea critters, sand dollars and shells.   With cool daytime temperatures, mile long beach walks are the perfect exercise and stress reliever.   Nothing like the sound of the surf to ensure a sense of serenity.    We are so thankful to our God for providing our paradise here in Puerto Penasco.

Las Palomas Activities Abound

Ready for some relaxation on the beach?   Or how about a little more activity?    When you come to Rocky Point, stay at Las Palomas for the best of both worlds.

Las Palomas offers a variety of activites, each hour, everyday to keep the active folks and kiddos happy.   All the way from stretching, volleyball and water aerobics, to bingo, Pinatas, and movies.   The activities staff will keep you moving if that is what you’re after.   Most of the activities take place alternating between  the phase 1 and phase 2 pool areas.    Or visit the beach for some fun sand castle building.

More interested in total relaxation?     The palapas on the beach offer cool shade while watching the waves, the waiters will bring your cool drinks and munchies.   Still stressed?   Head up to the spa for a fabulous facial or massage.   Too far to walk back to the spa?    Just roll over to the beach massage tables.   How can you beat the sound of the surf while enjoying a massage?

Your activity level right in the middle of both extremes?   How about a class?   Las Palomas now offers classes in making ceviche and guacamole.   Even though I prefer to order them off the menu in the onsite Restaurant or swim up pool bars, I might be able to get hubby to go to the class so he can make it for me!

Don’t forget the musical entertainment available at las Palomas.   Every Friday night, in addition to my favorite 3 hour Happy Hour, the amazing Restaurant Citron features live jazz music.   Avril and her musical family set the tone for relaxing and talking with friends.  What a great way to kick off the weekend!   And don’t forget the extra musical shows on our busiest weekends, the entertainment is top notch and exciting for the whole family.
