Relaxing day at Pedregal

After a late night... a late morning.   The beautiful view from our terrace.

Oh yeah, a filling breakfast goes a long way to help with the hangover.

It was well after noon by the time we finally left our room.  OMG, from 68 degrees to over 100 outside.  Yikes.  Despite the oppressive heat, I decided to explore.

Despite the 100+ degree temps, lots of crazies out in the sun.

The fitness center is the place to be today with much nicer 70 degree temps.

... and a view.

 Now after 2pm, we headed for a light lunch at Don Manuel's, near the beach.

Much more pleasant inside with cooling fans.

Food was excellent as we shared the Blue Fin Tuna...

... and shrimp tacos.  Fabulous.

Then back up to the room to cool down.  A little after 4pm, snack time!  With some creature moving in from the left.  LOL.

By 7pm, the temps had cooled into the upper 80s, and the walk to dinner was more pleasant.

Tonight we're dining at el Farallon, the resort's signature cliff side restaurant.

A drink to start as the sun sets...

el Farallon serves a 4 course quasi prix fixe menu featuring ocean-to-table selections.  The starters are standard, you just have to pick your main and two sides from a variety of choices... all explained here prior to being seated.


Yummy bread basket.

Up first, excellent clam chowder.

Then a trio of delicious starters.

The octopus was sensational.

The ceviche divine.

And a lovely beet salad.

Our mains.  Mrs. SFO777 enjoyed the Mexican red snapper and her sides of Mexican rice and zucchini.

And my Cajun shrimp with sides of roasted tomato with pesto and capellini with home made chorizo.  Fabulous. 

And desserts to die for.

Heading back to our room after a wonderful meal.

Poolside entertainment, nice with a drink at the bar.  Not so nice in our room.  Mercifully, they packed it in at 10pm.
