“Are we there yet” and “how much farther” tends to start well within 10 minutes of leaving home. On a long drive like today that can get old quickly. Lake Arrowhead is about an hour drive from us. The drive up the mountain is right on the cliff. So those who are afraid of height, do not look out the car, well unless you are driving. We have some friends that live up in Lake Arrowhead. So we decided to go and visit them. Today’s weather was fairly cool, which was very pleasant for this late in Spring.
We went to Hortencias Mexican Grill for lunch. They have two restaurants in the area. We had intended to go to Hortencias at the Cliffhanger, however our google maps took us the wrong direction. By the time I realized it we just decided to eat at their original restaurant. The Cliffhanger location has great views of the valley for anyone unfamiliar with the area. Their food is great too.
After visiting with friends we went to The Village. It’s a cute shopping area with a lots of little shops, and even an area where you can feed ducks and geese. It was a nice break from our monotonous routine with lots of good food. We got to eat ice-cream, and even ate a caramel apple at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I was especially impressed with a little store called Three Dog Bakery. There are so many Pets Mart and Petcos around, it was nice to see something different. Their store has been there 11 years. She has a lot of hand made treats that your dog will love. If you are on vacation in Lake Arrowhead, make sure to pick up a treat for fido. You’ll be supporting a great small business. They carry my favorite toy company toys from West Paws. So we had to get our golden retrievers one of their discs.
Near the lake is a location called Lollipop Park. There are a couple rides for children. Johanna and I rode on a go-cart for a little while. She was my co-pilot. She asked to go on, but after a couple of laps she got a bit bored. We then went to Saddleback Grill. It’s a nice restaurant, with great food. We’ve been there before about a year ago. It is fairly expensive, but it’s nice to spend some money once in a while without thinking about price.
All in all it was fun times in Lake Arrowhead. We can’t wait to do it again.
