El Golfo Sonora Mexico - Southwest Vacation - El Capitan

It is true... if you have vacationed in El Golfo, Sonora, Mexico you will be asked if you went to El Capitan.

You will want to say a resounding Yes! Watch for the sign as you drive into El Golfo. You have made it to your desitanation, now it's time to reward yourself with a cool drink and some great Mexico Style food.

If you don't want to while away the day at El Capitan, then at least stop in for a quick bite! Try the Shrimp and Eggs or the Shrimp Tacos. Really, they are very good..

If you don't want beer try out an orange soda. When you order sodas here they come in glass bottles. When was the last time you had a soda from a bottle.

Think of your favorite Jimmy Buffett - Margaritaville
songs - and you will have a clear vision in your mind of what this place is like. I mean... you could "step on a pop top" just getting in the door.

And... if your not into drinking your way through the hot afternoons, you can sit on the deck and people watch. Be forwarned...if you are from the Yuma area, you will find someone you know at El Capitan at most any time.

Drive up to the door and park in the sand.
The Bar... That is Teresa - the owner and cook - behind the bar

Proof Positive - Margaritaville can be found at El Capitan!
You can camp at El Capitan... Just ask Teresa for a spot!
More camping. This is the view from the deck! (Before Spring Break)
Shopping is available at El Capitan
If your lacking reading material, you will find many tourist stories to read on over 100 t-shirts hanging from the rafters

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Whoami

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
