First, you watch the sunset at Basecamp.
After dark, take a walk on the beach and appreciate the Christmas lights strung on the trees.
Go to Manana, the Mexican restaurant.
Order the soft tacos with beef...
And the shrimp flautas.
If you're still hungry, go next door to Big Mama and have some giant meatballs.
While waiting for your order, stare at the piece of driftwood next to your table.
On the way home, stop to watch the fire dancers.
The next day, do everything all over again.
Food review: Everything we ate was excellent. Manana, in my opinion, is the best Mexican place in the country. The beef tacos were very flavorful and lots of fun to assemble. The shrimp in the flautas were perfectly cooked, and we all know how hard it is to get shrimp right. The meatballs at Big Mama brought back memories of high school cafeteria comfort food, except that we were sitting on the beach, under the full moon.
