Day 17: Journey's End!!

Up and off to the Exploratorium again.  Hopefully there won’t be a special day today at it. 

Nope we’re fine and use the Citypass to get in.  I love this hands’ on science place.  It’s great.  If they had one in Edinburgh, I would work there!

We play for with the exhibits for a few hours and as it’s getting busy we head off.  Now the Exploratorium is moving in 2013 to its new home on Pier 15-17. 
Playing about.

Like Alice in Wonderland!
Palace Of Fine Arts


So iconic in San Francisco.
Drive round to Crissy Field and have a walk to the pier.

Nice clear day.

You taking my picture!


Playing in the water.

On the way back to collect our luggage from the hotel we stop to have lunch at Taco Bell for the last time.  Much prefer this to McD’s back home.  Need them back home.

We drive up and over Lombard Street and onto Coit Tower.  Find a parking place up at the tower, but the queue for it was too long to go up.

Said to be modelled on a firemans hose!

The Bay Bridge.
Head off to finally get our luggage and squeeze it all into the car and depart for the airport.

Drop the girls off at the airport with the luggage before I head back to drop the car off at the returns.  The car safely booked back in, I grab the monorail back to the airport to find the girls and check-in.  It’s not open yet, so wait for nearly an hour.  Checked in and off to the lounge to have our tea as it’s a night flight and I just sleep to try and adjust right away, plus we’re driving back from Heathrow. 

On the plane we find all the weirdo’s are in our part of the cabin.  Strange American lady, first time Upper Class flyers who take photos of everything and laugh and shout all night.  Strange bloke next to me who appears to be having nightmares and screams out during the night.  He also strips down to just his PJ bottoms!  Strange American Lady exercises during the night too!

Fast forward to Heathrow where one of our bags never arrives and we find out a bag had been tagged twice, so it’s off up the motorway system to West Lothian minus a bag.  The bag has arrived at Heathrow on Sunday and making its way up North soon.
