In A Sea Of Luxury, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal Rises To The Top

“You’re here at the wrong time.” “Come back in November.” “The whale sharks prefer winter.”. As I explored the Mexican state of Baja California Sur in July, these refrains became so common I started to finish locals’ sentences. The decision, however, came down to more than syncing my trip with wildlife migration or the maturing of sea lion pups; rather, I needed a break from the 16 months of cloistered monotony that was living in New York’s Catskills during the pandemic.

Major fire threatens forest and structures near Ilwaco

A wildfire broke out about 2 p.m. Thursday in the vicinity of 5704 40th St. (U.S. Highway 101) in Ilwaco and threatened structures and the neighboring forest on China Hill. The highway was closed between Sandridge Road and the U.S. 101 Alternate. At 5 p.m. a Washington Department of Natural Resources hotshot crew was on scene, aiding all south county fire departments. Multiple DRN helicopters also responded and dropped numerous containers of water scooped up from a nearby pond. A moderate breeze carried the fire south through a field of tall grass and it approached the Wayne Plumb residence at 5306 40th St., but appeared to be blocked by a firebreak and a drainage ditch, in addition to water sprayed from the yard into the approaching tall flames. This is preliminary unedited video from the scene, taken between about 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. An Observer reporter/photographer on the scene said at 5:15 p.m. that the wind has really picked up. The DNR copters have switched to picking up water farther away after 5 p.m., leading to somewhat longer transit times.
