People always assume that because you’re from Arizona you don’t know what life is like on the beach. Please, people. Just because our state is landlocked and we have no natural bodies of water here (Lake Sahuarita does not count) doesn’t mean we can’t find our way around a bonfire, a bikini, and some beach volleyball. With Rocky Point only three hours away, and Kino and San Carlos only slightly farther, there are few of us who don’t take advantage of the water.
As a kid growing up in Tucson never seemed like growing up away from the beach. At every opportunity, my parents would throw us in the back of the car, load up the tents, and drive south. I give you Exhibit A: A trio of salty-haired kids with tans.
For the Gaxiolas, the beach weekend is a way of life. I give you Exhibit B: Gaxiolas stacked to the sky.Normally, Easter weekend or semana santa is a perfect beach-going time. Unfortunately, this Easter I will miss out on the beach. There is just too much craziness going on at QuikHelp and at home. Such is the life of the entrepreneur.
BUT, I am looking forward to some serious beach time come Memorial Day weekend. All I have to do is somehow survive the rest of April and most of May. Bring it on!
Already at the beach in spirit,
