          hi, what is the weather generally like in September?

          Answer Show all 3 answers
          Response from GM-RZBR | Property representative |
          Although we make no guarantees about weather, September is usually sunny and warm. It is not the hottest time of the year (January, February) but it will likely still be in the low 30's.

          My friends stayed with you in October 2013 and they ate baby lobster on the beach BBQ. They think it was called sierras but aren't sure. Does anyone know what it is called??

          Answer
          Response from GM-RZBR | Property representative |
          Hi, They are not baby lobsters, but slipper lobsters. A smaller and clawless member of the crustacean family. Here, they are often referred to as "cigale". I hope that helps.
