Out West Part 11: The Long way Home

On our last night in Colorado, we swung through a small town called Durango and ate at a small restaurant called Tacos Nayarit.  The place was packed and we had to wait for a seat. We took that as a great sign. The margaritas were strong, and  the homemade salsa was fantastic. Probably why there was a wait.

 They served horchata which is my daughter's all time favorite drink.  It is basically rice pudding with a straw.  They didn't have much in the meatless category, so I went with cheese enchiladas. They were divine. The Hubby went with a taco combination plate some were cactus, some were beef tongue.  The cactus was fantastic and he claims the beef tongue was even better but I wouldn't know.  

Then we moved on.

We made a quick stop at the Double Nickel at exit 366 off I-80 in Waco, Nebraska.  I can't say that I liked the camping, but the amenities were pretty great. They had a swimming pool, a mini golf course, showers, flushing toilets, and a laundry facility.  There was probably wifi but I didn't check.  The R.V. campers looked at us like we were nuts when we were rolling up our tent, so I guess the feeling was mutual.

We finally rolled in around 11pm, having taken the longest road trip of my life.  Even with all the hiking, I think the fast food and sitting won out, as all my pants were too tight when I got home.  While I am terribly happy to shower and sleep in my own bed, I'm not really ready to start the diet and exercise plan.
