the last lunch of 2007

After tinagues, where the price of avocado has soared to 23 pesos a kilo (about $1 a pound), then a quick trip to La Bodega, a supermarket that's an offshoot of Wal-Mart, it was time for lunch. A gringo visitor from Milwaukee, Al, invited us to join him and Marie at Dago's on the beach for fish tacos. Three fish tacos and two beers later we came home just in time for siesta. Lovely.

There is much activity in the village for tonight. But, as usual, the Patient and I will have a quiet dinner, raise a toast at about 10 PM, and call it a night. Are you surprised, knowing what a party animal the Patient is?

My wish for all for 2008, "May all your fish tacos be as good as those at Dago's today." If they are, you will have a very splendid year.

Happy New Year, dear FevBrain! I loved the beach memories post too ~ my family would rent a house in San Clemente (pre-icky Nixon) for a month every summer. Nothing like that scratchy sandy bathing suit feel and the sunburn and the "don't go in the ocean so soon after lunch" whole enchilada (pardon, fish taco) package.
