I’ve heard from many, many people who stumble onto this website while searching for historical information about the area. Some folks have even been nice enough to send in their photos and anecdotes from their days “way back” in the 50’s and 60’s.
With all the growth and construction going on, I’ve become increasingly interested in people’s stories from the ‘old times’ of Puerto Peñasco, when everybody called the place ‘a sleepy little fishing village’.
Lots of you seem to be famiilar with Puerto Peñasco from the 60’s on – I’m guessing somebody made a killing selling fishing boats in Tucson right around that time. I’d like to start an ongoing collection of your stories about Puerto Peñasco. I’m looking for your stories, memories, and recollections of Puerto Peñasco from ‘way back in the day’ – especially the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s.
Anything goes – when you were there, what you did, who you remember, how you remember the Puerto Peñasco of the past. Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org! I’d love to hear them and, with permission, post them for others.
