Bringing in 2016

Colin and I started a new tradition yesterday.  We went to a beach restaurant yesterday for a late lunch and talked about the past year.  IT also filled out tummies until we got our late night dinner.

Sadly the final sunset of 2015 was not at all dramatic.

We actually did not eat in the Plazuela but at the restaurant Delirium mere steps away.  We had wanted to eat at El Presidio, same as last New Years but we were too late in makeng a reservation.

It was very cool and windy on the Isla when we left which dictated my attire for the evening.  However it was pleasantly warm in town.

Delirium is a small intimate place but we did not feel crowded at all.  They even have a few tables on the street.

They even have a few tables on the street.  Sadly they were very short staffed in the kitchen delaying our meals but a combination of good wine and great friends help to make the time pass.

We were in plenty of time to count in the New Year.

What a perfect way to end one year and bring in the next.

Once the clock struck midnight the place was hopping.
