Tequila(!) on The Lake, California

After a morning of adventuring, one thing was needed as the afternoon started turning to evening: tequila! Did you hum along and then yell it? If not, just leave this page now.

I mentioned a few posts ago how I’m now a believer that the sky in California is different than anywhere else in the world. The blues in the morning and the vibrant colors when the sun sets are beautiful beyond words. My favorite time though, late afternoon.

After Balboa Island, I hadn’t had enough of the warm California air, the beautiful mountains and especially that sky. I was told there was a perfect place to go and enjoy all of it.

A little Mexican restaurant, Hacienda, right on the Mission Viejo lake with incredible food and an even better view.

The patio is the perfect place to settle in and watch the afternoon sink away into evening.

Margarita in hand, obviously.

It goes without saying that a margarita isn’t complete without a side of fresh, homemade guacamole to nibble on with it.

The face of a very, very happy girl.

Fresh guac, margaritas and mountains. What more could you want out of life?
