Gadsden Hotel Douglas Arizona

I was with a friend last week who lost a family member, so 3 of us friends went on a 700 mile road trip to the funeral. We all live in Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point, Mexico. The services were in Douglas Arizona, then a quick visit across the border into Agua Prieta Mexico.

There was adventure at every turn on the drive there. Crazy hail storn on the freeway where many cars were pulled over waiting for it to pass. Then more rain on the drive there, then finally arrived in the early evening to the church for the service. That first evening we stayed at the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas Arizona. Had a chance to visit with the family, lots of love surrounding our friend. What a beautiful historic place to be. The owner, Florencio, took us up to our floor in the over 100 year old Otis elevator. The Tiffany glass is beautiful, and there was a wonderful grand staircase. History says that Pancho Villa was riding his horse up the staircase, and broke off a small piece of the stair with the hoof of the horse. The bar (I think Saddle and Spur) was very cute, I spent time there and the lounge in the lobby, learning new drinks from the owner, Rosa Anel. Yolanda the bartender was very sweet.

We had a very nice breakfast in the restaurant Casa Segovia, and the piano player in the lobby was awesome.

See below some photos, including the one of the copper mug I purchased from the bar, the last one with the logo!

I also went in to the little museum inside the hotel, really cool, seeing photos from the old West.
Although the trip was for  a sad occasion, we still had a good time visiting friends and family. The Mass and services were beautiful. We so much enjoyed the hotel, where the owners were very welcoming and accomodating. Excellent customer service. We plan on another trip!

Rocky Point Trees

Even though we are in a desert region, “where the desert meets the ocean”,  Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point has alot of trees!! Every time I drive around town, I see beautiful big shade trees, small trees, manicured trees, trees that are formed into shapes. Last year as I drove around, I took photos of stop signs and wrote an article about it. Now is the time to show the trees! Enjoy.

Rocky Point Cruise Ships and Home Port

From Phoenix CBS News: http://www.kpho.com/clip/11999559/rocky-points-ship-is-soon-coming-in

The man-made pier is built of natural rock and concrete blocks that come from a plant that cranks them out, nonstop, 24 hours a day.

The dock will have room for two ships and will jut more than a half mile into the sea to reach deep water.

The terminal comes from the same architect as the iconic Palm man-made island development in Dubai and is LEED certified. In fact, the Mexican government has taken great strides to keep the project as green as possible, hiring an on-site biologist to keep an eye on marine life. Local ecology in mind, the ships will actually gas up down the coast in Guaymas.

According to Vazquez, the pier should be completed mid-2016 with the terminal and marina development in late 2017 or early 2018.

The New Hot Housing Market: Vacation Homes

Vacation home sales jumped to a record high in 2014, according to the National Association of REALTORS®’ 2015 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey.

Mexico Crime Rate Dropping

Mexico Crime Rate Dropping

peace-400x280

Violence and crime have declined in Mexico since 2012, says a report by an international research organization, with current conditions being similar to what they were in 2007.

The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) says falling homicide rates and activity by organized crime have not only made the country more peaceful but have helped boost the economy. It also concludes that there is great potential for peace in the long term based on institutional strengths.
