Saturday, April 30, 2005 - Code Tecate Grupo Tersa San Felipe 200. The racers had their contingency on the Malecon Friday late afternoon. Although it was scheduled for 2:00 p.m., most cars didn't line up until around 4:00. Many race participants from Mexicali and TJ don't leave to come here until they get off work, so contingency was still going at 10:30 p.m. The race got started at about 6:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, with the motorcycles starting off first and the others at 9:00 a.m. We'll have the winners this afternoon. There were tons of people on the streets and I hear the cantinas were full last night. Code Races seem to draw more and more people each year. A pretty good time was held by all. Photos.
Thursday, April 28, 2005. The City of San Felipe (Port) has been busy cleaning the Malecon. Yesterday, a water truck and a fire truck and city workers joined in cleaning the Malecon with soap and water. It was needed badly with our dog population and others contributing to the mess. Thank you Delegado!

Wednesday 6 April 2005. To learn every thing you've ever wanted to learn about cactus, including caring for, blooming frequency and growing tomatos in bad dirt and hot sun, check out Kat's Korner Gardening Tips. This barrel cactus is just beginning to bloom.
This is a reminder of what our beaches looked like closer to town and in front of the malecon. We had many different types of tents on the beaches and it was quite a site. Thursday is when they started putting up tents and by Sunday morning, you could barely walk through the maze of tents. This "impressive" photo courtesy of Chris.
