We decided to go to El Palicio for lunch. It was a toss up between Mexican and Pints Brewery. We both decided to give El Palicio another try. We've been several times over the years and but last year I wasn't crazy about it as it was really salty.
Jose, our waiter brought the chips and homemade salsa. Chips were really salty, so much we couldn't eat them. They weren't warm so we thought they didn't make their own. We mentioned how salty they were and a few minutes later we had warm chips with no salt on them! When we ordered we asked that there be no added salt to the food. The food was wonderful and there were no complaints. At the end of our lunch Jose brought us fried tortilla chips with cinnamon and sugar along with whipped cream! Even Ken had a piece. Honestly I would definitely recommend this restaurant, if you don't like too much salt request the unsalted chips and ask the cook not to add salt to the food, it has plenty! Great prices too..at lunch.

Ken loved it! $6.99 lunch

After that we took the drive through Laughlin again and headed towards home. The Oak Ridge Boys are playing in Laughlin so we got a few pics of their bus. Don wanted us to go with them to see them in Nashville, but we weren't sure if we would be there when they played there.
Got back to camp and just vegged..I went outside with my book and Ken stayed inside with his checkbook..thinking my afternoon was more fun! After a couple of hours came inside and watched the news for a bit. Then we both headed outside to watch the sunset and the stars come out.

Talked a bit about our trip to TN and how far to go tomorrow. While that was going on the camp host came by to see when we were leaving. Apparently there were 4 rigs in the overflow tonight. She sent couple number 1 to us to put out a cone in the am. Really nice couple so we're glad our site is going to them. They are camp hosts during the summer at Lassen National Park in CA. They live in Vegas and this is their getaway camp.
I say I'm glad it's going to them as yesterday we were headed for the campground. A Class A sped up and passed us, got right back into the right lane. He turned into the campground and it was obvious he passed us to get in front of us at the entrance station. He didn't get a spot and probably went to a casino, but he was right there this morning driving around waiting for people to leave. He obviously asked our neighbor this morning as he pulled his atv there before the people left. Rude...I'm glad our site is getting these nice people.
We sat outside until after dark and enjoyed the stars and the quiet. Hard to believe with a full campground how quiet it is..
These couple are for you Russell...:)
