The Ventana View
FYI - Questions - Help
  • Can you spot a stingray in the sand? Here is a very short video to introduce what a Stingray looks like buried in the sand. Stingrays are harmless creatures, unless you step on one when they are buried in the sand. Some people shuffle their feet in the sand to scare them away. That’s what I do when I enter the water. A Stingray has a barb on the tail that they use to defend themselves; that’s the sting in Stingray. It’s very painful. Stingrays will leave you alone otherwise. I enjoy watching their unique and graceful way of swimming. - William desertplayer@hotmail.com

Community Action
Coronavirus Relief
With the two recent COVID-19-related deaths of community elders and the increasing number of affected families, you may be looking for ways to provide support.
For those who would like to help the townspeople of La Ventana and El Sargento currently suffering with COVID-19, please consider donating to these two efforts:
Justina Dominguez Rieke - Justina, from Fundación AZUL Cerralvo, is buying healthy food, water, electrolytes, cleaning products and medicine to be dispersed among those affected.
Guadalupe Cosio Barrera (Lupita) - Lupita, who leads the ambulance crew, is buying and distributing medicine and oxygen.
No Más Basura: Drop-Off Procedures & Sunday Cleanup - In an effort to keep everyone safe and to be more efficient we are asking for your help to pre sort as much as possible at home. Please separate into the following groups:
  • Glass
  • Plastic (flattened), bottle caps separate.
  • Aluminum cans (flattened)
  • Tin cans and aluminum foil. beer bottle tops
  • Not accepting: Clamshells, Ice Cream or Salsa Containers
If presorting at home isn’t an option, there will be a designated area at the baseball stadium away from the drop off. Please follow instructions given at the entrance of the stadium and please wear your mask at all times!
A little clean up campaign was held last Sunday. North by the Oscaritos area, south on the road starting from Rico’s house and in the dumpster. We want to thank all the families who participated, we invite you to keep the streets clean. Special thanks to the families of Janett, Marcela, Jolanta, Kevin, Tod and Moy.
Thank you for your support! Your NMB team. nomasbasuralv@gmail.com
Weekly Community Cleanup with Vida Compost - The Sunday cleanup is now a weekly thing, sponsored by Vida Compost. Every Sunday morning from 8am-12. Water, food, gloves, buckets and bags will be provided. The goal is to clean all major roads and arroyos and create awareness to prevent littering and encourage full covered trash loads being brought to our local dump. Your participation is of upmost importance, even if it’s just one hour. Your monetary donation will not go to waste. (Pun intended) Together we can make Baja Beautiful. Details here.
Farmers Market
Farmers Market is every Thursday. Look for the market a few blocks North of Club Cerralvo along the main road, before El Teso. More on Facebook. Announcements:
  • Larry & Paty - Fresh Smoked Yellow-Tail, Paty’s new homemade sugar free Fig Jam, and Fig Chipotle Sauce, her original Pepper Jelly, Pineapple Habanero Pepper Jelly, Salsa Verde, and AAA first quality Vanilla beans from Veracruz, great to take home for gifts! Also Baja Art cards and Handmade Mexican blouses. Stop by and try our free samples.
  • Featured Vendor: Minka Swimwear - If you haven’t visited the market lately you should stop by and check out some of this season’s new vendors. Like Majo, who started her own business called Minka Swimwear. Majo is a marine biologist who was on the search for swimwear that would reflect her love of the ocean. Sadly, what little there was available in Mexico was too costly so she decided to launch her own line of affordable bikinis that are made from recycled bottles! She purchases the recycled PET fabric and has it custom dyed and printed with her own graphic creations that reflect the ocean’s beauty. Each garment is reversible so you can have different looks by switching things up. Styles also reflect her desire that they be suitable for either sports activities or just looking stylish on the beach. Her motto is “Ocean-awareness one eco-bikini at a time.” You can find her on the main aisle this Thursday!
