Yesterday, Tuesday, I was up early enough to see another beautiful sunrise. Header picture.
Bill had been up a bit when he asked, "Want to go to La Martina for breakfast." Well, of course. So off we went. When we got to the free road 15 saw these big signs. One advertising the hotel and restaurant in La Noria and the one on the left telling you to turn around and go back to the toll rod to get to El Quelite as the free road is still closed because of the bridge that got washed out during the hurricane.Also in part due to the hurricane and wet weather during the summer it is so green here this year. And all kinds of flowers are blooming along the roads.
Part of the road to La Noria, and La Martina, has been repaved and widened. Nice. See all the green.
Turning in to La Martina the cactus fence is flourishing too.
As beautiful as ever.
We like to sit on the back area. This covered area didn't have any vines on it when we left here in February. Things grow so lush and fast here.
Looking down across the big yard to the forest beyond.
We like to sit at the table right up against the edge of the area looking down over the lawn.
View from our table.
Bill had American coffee I had Olla, Mexican coffee. Always bring tortilla chips and sweet potato chip and cheese made in the area. And of course dip.
Bill relaxing and enjoying the scenery.
More trees and flowers have been planted along the lawn and by the two buildings.
Another look at the lawn. So green. What a beautiful place for events.
A little bit of new waiter and language difficulties when ordering our breakfast. So we ended up with a whole lot to eat. Bills meal.
My meal, it comes with a spicy sausage that is just too hot for me to eat so asked if something could be substituted for it. Have done that before usually getting a small portion of fruit instead of sausage. As I said a bit of miscommunication. Instead of sausage I got a pulled chicken dish that was delicious. Bottom of dish. I ate everything on the plate (except for the beans.)
Another fence of cactus.
Looking back at the restaurant. Can't you just imagine a bride coming down those steps.
I live the tiles on the steps.
Pictures from inside the patio area of the restaurant.
Beautiful floor. There used to be tables in this area.
Heading back out to the highway the bougainvilleas are beautiful.
As always a great meal and beautiful place. Such a nice way to spend a morning. We didn't continue on to La Noria or go to the tequila distillery. Will do that another day. Spent the afternoon at home then went out to the look out point by the light house to watch the sunset. Another post. Enjoying our time here, just wish it would cool down a little and that the humidity will soon go down. Then we'll be able to spend more time out and about.
