January is about over, and February / Febrero signals the time for birds, whales, Valentines, and festivals in our neighboring country, Mexico (in particular, Baja).
I didn’t know this, but Groundhog’s Day is also celebrated as Dia de la Candelaria in Mexico. As here in the States, it signals the mid-point between winter solstice (December 21 or 22) and the spring equinox (March 20 or 21), but it is also a religious / Christian holiday representing 40 days after the birth of Christ and signaling the end of Christmas (put very, very simply).
Anyway, I will get back to February and try not to think about summer months a-comin’
The gray whales have been parading past our coastline in San Diego for a few weeks now; we don’t even need to leave the shore to view them, they are so near. Trekking to warmer waters to mate and to feed, more than half the gray whale births take place in Laguna Ojo de Libre.
Other than whale-watching and such, some of you will be interested in the bird migration, art shows, and some will be VERY interested in ♦♦♦♦♦ hotel-stays for V-day …
For whatever reason, as advised even in Mexico, don’t drive alone, don’t drive at night, don’t drive without a cell phone with international calling, and don’t drive without insurance.
Look at these average temps in February:
|High °F||Low °F||City||High °C||Low °C|
|79||55||Cabo San Lucas||26||13|
|88||65||Ixtapa & Zihuatanejo||31||18|
Oh yeah, let’s go to Mexico!! Our family has recently discovered San Felipe. I think our dang menfolk are trying to claim it as a “man only” destination (fathers and sons) HOWEVER we womenfolk saw the pics and the amazing home they stayed in on the beach – saw the video of them quadding – and we have some plans of our own. Maybe we will see you there
