Thus begins the summer season or as my husband calls it “The Honey Do” season. This coming from the man who I once asked to build us some cement block steps for our little travel trailer. I got the cement and the blocks and went to the beach and left him to do his magic. It was amazing. In 20 minutes he was at the beach with drinks in hand. I said “WOW that was quick”. Come to find out he hired the man in the park to do it!
One thing you learn living in Puerto Peñasco or probably anywhere in Mexico… when you get a good repairman… KEEP HIM.
Thursday I asked my husband why the water pump was running and we were not using any water. So I shimmed in between the big water tank and the wall and found the issue. The 15 year plastic tube had sprung 3 major leaks. Called the plumber and in 10 minutes he was at the gate. One hour later he was done and we were so happy. His name is Hector Briseno Martinez and is an electrician and plumber. He has never had me wait more that 2 hours to come out. His number is 383-4059 or 044-638-107-0701. Tell him we recommended him. He doesn’t speak English but usually has a son that can. Show him the issue and don’t worry about the language barrier.
Fast forward to Friday night when we turned on the downstairs mini-split air conditioner and it started dripping water. Called our new best friend Galo at Aire Refrigeracion (383-7272). We set a time of 10 am today and they were right on time. They have now been here 2 hours servicing the unit and it looks and sounds great. Galo speaks very good English and they are so good and very reasonable. Ironically, Steve, a friend ours from Buckeye introduced us to him a few weeks ago, but came recommended by another friend who has a place in Las Conchas. Steve is the God Father to Galo’s daughter Lya. When he was showing me the picture of her and their new dogs, I said that is Lya and then the lights came on for both of us. We all met at the La Roca (Rock Hotel) in the old port. If you have not been there, stop by and see the old rock hotel that was once a hang out for Al Capone.
In the midst of all this, came our “Jardineria en General” gardener Alfredo Nogales. The trees all need their summer haircut and he is very good. Most of you in Puerto Peñasco reading this will know him as Fredo and he has worked at several bars and restaurants here in Puerto Peñasco and is currently also working at The Beach Bum on the Malecon. His number is 044-638-103-6555. He can help you with all your planting needs.
We at Puerto-Penasco.com appreciate all the likes that you are giving us. In case you missed it last week The Huffington Post mentioned Puerto Peñasco in it’s paper when referring to people you live abroad and write blogs and it also links to us so you can follow what is happening. Over the next few weeks as I have said, we will be adding new things to our page to keep it fresh and updated.
You can tell from my writing, that Puerto Penasco aka Rocky Point is still a very small town and you never know you will meet that knows another friend of yours.
Let us know what you think of our look and also if you, our readers, have anything you would like us to add, please let us know.
Also remember when in the water shuffle shuffle shuffle for the Sting Rays and watch for the Jelly Fish this time of year. The water is getting nice and warm, so come and enjoy it. If it is your first visit, just remember a little smile goes a long way. We don’t move at the pace that you do in the US, so relax and slow down and smell the ocean breezes and enjoy the sunsets.
