Rachel and I make it a point of living life to the fullest, we try and make every moment an adventure. However, this summer was more about fun than adventure and I must say it has been absolutely incredible and we have got to know the Pacific Baja better than ever before. We've been very knowledgeable about the area, but that is not knowing the area, not until you get to know the people.
This summer we got to know some really wonderful people, and got reacquainted with many others. We need to thank George at the Lighthouse Restaurant in La Mision, thanks for the great times at your place. You know how to party. We need to thank Joanie and Tina, and Kim, Chris, Court, Pris, and John at Mama Bear's Pizza,
It was really cool to see Blues maestro Chet Cannon with his lovely wife Mary show up to our Rosarito Beach Blues Against Hunger Concert on Saturday - Sept 26, 2015. What a fun day, with a great turn out and lots of friends including Maureen Minehan, Franny Morris, Craig Klein, Dick Cadger and Kathy Thompson all the way from San Felipe and guitar builder extraordinaire Steve Kinney, that gave me an opportunity to play his custom "Crossroads" guitar. Thanks to everyone that came out and enjoyed the party and help thoses in need. A personal thanks also to our friends and great musicians in ATM Band for opening the show and jamming with us to close the show; and thanks to Bart Berry and Holly Avila for showing these talents with us. Sara Vega of 'Sara en Movimiento A.C.' thank you for all the help and ensuring the people that need to the food get it and of course Jeanne Pepler and Paradise Cove Tiki Bar & Grill. We had a great few months with you and this was a great way to have a final show. Thanks everyone!
