Since it was our last night at Austin’s, we figured we'd relax and enjoy it. The hot tub sure did wonders for our tired muscles and aching feet. We decided to hang out and try Austin’s Mexican take out for dinner. Take-out, in this case, would be to a table out on the large front porch. There were picnic tables on the lawn but we figured we’d enjoy people watching on Torrey’s main drag.
We pigged out and ordered a chicken tamale, shredded beef enchilada, pork carnitas quesadilla and enchilada. Black beans and veggies on the side and lots of fresh salsa and guacamole. We took our time and enjoyed the meal. It was far better than we’d expected (and especially delicious with the cold beers we grabbed from our cooler) and the portions were so large that we regretted ordering so much. Locals and tourists would park in front of the store and go in to shop. One even commented that our food smelled pretty darn good. We let him know that it tasted good too! “Good to know”, he said as he hopped into his pickup and drove off with his dog.
The traffic in on Rt. 24 was pretty constant but not so much or so fast that it was annoying to eat there. A group of about nine motorcycles pulled into Austin’s and idled to the office as we finished dinner. They later pulled over to the three cabins at Austin’s. We saw quite a few biker folks around in general. It was beautiful riding weather, and the scenery and winding Highway 12 are well known in the motorcycling world. We returned to our room and watched TV before falling asleep early. We’d rather be up early than up late, especially while on vacation.
