Saludos to the 2021 Rocky Point Rally! It sure was fun being there and producing the YouTube video embedded here. You’ll have…Read More
Maybe you are like me. You know how easy it is to get to Rocky Point. We have done the drives to and from Puerto Peñasco so many times we could practically do it with our eyes closed. And even better, to put it in future terms, we could easily make the trip before any self-driving vehicle could, right?
On a side note, sadly I admit my bladder dictates I must also keep track on all Mexico road trips where the bathrooms are. In this way, I hope you are not like me! But I digress.
Getting back on point, I do mean to tell a personal story here. Though it has nothing to do with bodily functions. And perhaps surprisingly, it has nothing to do with GPS, or navigating travel by car, truck, trailer, or RV.
In writing here about following the signs to Rocky Point, I am specifically talking about following the signs to complete this website for Rocky Point Direct. You see, I am one of those spiritually driven people who is always “looking for signs.”
Yesterday, I seemed to have reached one of those stretches of road on my journey, where I was tentative and concerned about what I was doing, and what lies ahead. My efficiency was nowhere near where I wanted or need it to be. Fear of failure was driving the bus. That was until last night.
I was blessed with a good reason for stopping work. There were messages to return from a woman named Amanda. I did not know her. But she was interested in choosing Sonoran Sun 510 East for the upcoming Puerto Peñasco getaway she and her husband were planning. After exchanging written messages, we wound up talking on the phone to explore their staying with us.
Without prompting of any kind, she began explaining how she was frustrated by the high fees a certain online booking site was going to charge them. As I listened closely, I started getting a chill down the back of my neck. I’ve visited this place many times before. The timing of this was as extraordinary as it was natural.
Amanda had NO idea in that moment I was feeling fear about developing a low-cost online booking site for the exact reasons she was sharing with me! How could she? Plus, she had NO idea of her unique role in helping the universe deliver the perfect confirmation for me at the perfect time.
Some may call acts such as this “A God Thing.” Others may say it is just a coincidence. But for me, I am accepting this gift with gratitude as more fuel to keep following the signs to finish Rocky Point Direct. I have always known there were hosts and guests who would take a ride on a low-cost, local alternative to the giant online booking sites.
Amanda unknowingly held up the right sign at the right time. And I will be paying it forward to her and her husband when they will soon be staying at Sonoran Sun 510 East for their birthday celebration. I hope they are ready to enjoy a pleasant surprise like they gave me.
