After a few hours on the beach we spotted a Mexican restaurant across the way and we can never really resist Mexican food. So we walked across the street to La Cocina De Tony. This restaurant has obviously been here for a long time so it's not fine dining that's for sure. But it is totally fine after a beach day and has a great view of the lake. The salsa was awesome! The food was pretty good. I got shrimp tacos that were just so so but the Hubby loved his Carne Asada burritio. After our meal we decided to head back over to Lake Arrowhead to kill some time before jumping on the freeway for Friday traffic. We walked through Lake Arrowhead Village, which is super cute and had tons of cool and some unexpected stores. We grabbed frozen yogurt from McDonald's (they have an ice cream shop but no frozen yogurt there). After making a mess with my chocolate dipped cone I embarrassingly had to rinse off before we could continue our walk. We stopped and watched all the ducks and ducklings for awhile and then just sat down at the water line for awhile.
It was really a fantastic, leisurely day. It didn't cost us much. Just $10 for the beach, around $35 for lunch and $4 for ice cream. The biggest cost was gas and time on the road but we love getting away. And even though we didn't have time to spend the night it was a perfect day trip. There is really something to be said for changing your scenery. We will definitely be going back!
