Eric ventures out on the Tiger and Dinner at Torres with Ian and Linda.

Yesterday morning Eric was off on "Tigger" as in Winnie the Pooh! 😃 Eric purchased the new 2022 Triumph Tiger 900 last spring on our way home. We still want to ride in Mexico and the Harley ultra is just too heavy for the small Mexican towns with their cobblestone streets.  The tiger weighs half as much as Big Red.  Eric spent the summer ordering all the boxes and necessary extras as it was bare bones when he bought it.
Ready to roll.  He was off to El Quelite to test it out as its one of those small, congested cobblestone towns.  When he returned he said they were working on the bridge over the freeway and his only option was to go south and double back.  He couldn't access the freeway or free road heading  north.  Hopefully the bridge repair is quick.  A good ride other than that.
Last night Ian and Linda joined us at Torres for dinner.  They have both been sick since they got here and now they are feeling better it was our first outing together.  Ian had his birthday at the beginning of the month, they had their anniversary and next week is Eric's birthday so....a mini celebration.
We arrived at 5pm as happy hour is 4 to 6 and we didn't want to miss that!  Torres is a very nice restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean but it is not cheap!  The service is excellant as many of the same waiters have been there for 25 and 30 years and boy...can they ever hustle.  The music was good as well.
The sun is setting.'s gone!
I mucked up the dinner pictures but this is Linda's tuna.
Thursday is prime rib night at Torres, which I knew!  Very delicious and half came home with me for tonight's stir fry.  This was the small size😮
Ian had the Mexican plate which has a selection and Eric had fish in garlic and no...we didn't have dessert!

We were all done by just after seven, full and happy...a good evening out.


  1. The new bridge is messed up already? I miss Torres. Enjoy your time there and take lots of pictures for us.

  2. Not the El Quelite bridge the one that goes over the freeway to the free road and the north access to the maxipista.

  3. What a wonderful place and fantastic sunsets.
