‘Super Moon’ and Sea Turtles?

Sunday's 'Super Moon' rises over the beach in Las Conchas.

Sunday’s ‘Super Moon’ rises over the beach in Las Conchas.

Sunday night saw the rise of the ‘Super Moon’. Brighter and larger because it passes closer to the earth than at any time in the past 20 years,  the moon made a great show for those spending time here in Rocky Point. Tides are high too, as the natural world responds to the moons magnetic pull.

Our beach is currently the home for a nest of Pacific Olive Ridley sea turtle eggs. Laid last month, the eggs are due to hatch between now and the end of August. Environmental specialists here to over see the nest are speculating that the unusual moon may work it’s magic and cause the little guys to break out of their shells and head for the waves. While no longer full, the next two nights will still have lots of  lunar ‘pull’.

A Lunada is a traditional Mexican beach party to accompany full moons. Maybe tonights the night to celebrate the beauty of nature, gaze at the stars, and maybe witness one of natures most awesome events.

2014 Rocky Point Rally


Plan ahead now for one of Rocky Points’ best loved annual events. The Rocky Point Rally is coming this November 6th through 9th. Last year there were around 5000 registered, but many non-riders come to enjoy the over the top party atmosphere that descends on the city. Mardi-Gras and Spring Break rolled into one, the Rally brings bikers from as far away as Canada.

And it really is a non-stop show. The fun starts before even arriving in town with the Across the Border Poker Run. Last year, riders went out to tour the Pinacate Biosphere Reseve, and this time it will be offered on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Saturday Night will see the band Mogollon take the stage, as they have for the past few years. The Malecon sees lots of action all weekend. The street is perfect for cruising your bike past the crowd. The bars and restaurants over flow with revellers, and burn out contests rule the day.

Bikes flow back and forth between the Malecon and Calle13, which see just as much action. Here is where the Toy Parade starts as well, where bikers give out toys and toss candy to super happy local kids. Charity is a large part of the Rocky Point Rally. Last year more that $9000 dollars was raised for local organizations like La Montana School (helping children with special needs), The Red Cross, as well as for the the firefighters. No trip to Rocky Point would be complete without a sunset cruise, and there is one just for registered bikers on Saturday Night.

Just a few years old, the Rocky Point Rally is starting to gain some real notice throughout the world of cyclists. People are invariable blown away by the sights and sound of a Rally by the sea, and efforts to promote the event are getting tthe word out to more and more bike afficionados. Some of this years sponsors who are making the Rall a success include Sea Side Reservations, Playa Bonita Resort, Mexpro Insurance, and Law Tigers, Motorcycle Lawyers.

*The 2014 Rocky Point Rally will begin Thursday, November 6th, and run through Sunday, November 9th.
