Leaving my heart in San Francisco...

Last day is here.  We head out at 7:00 tomorrow morning. : (

Today was a little less hectic than the past few days.  We checked out of our hotel and headed to the Ferry Building.  We had a lunch reservation at a Vietnamese restaurant that was lauded by friends who had been there as well as Frommer's, Fodor's, and Zagat.

We were lucky to get a much coveted table outside overlooking the bay. I sipped a cool glass of white wine while we looked over the lengthy menu. 

The food was served family style so we just got a few dishes to share....Hoisin sauced spare ribs, crispy vegetable rolls, and shrimp, scallops, mushrooms, brocolli and carrots over noodles.  Delish.

Lunch was filling....but not so much that there wasn't room for a mint chocolate chip gelato.  Heaven.
Tonight we are staying in a hotel near the airport.  We returned the rental car and then took the tram back to the airport where the hotel shuttle would pick us up.  After walking around the airport for a while and then finally catching the first tram that had arrived, we found ourselves on the wrong one and were soon heading back to the rental car area.

We quickly got off of this one and caught another one....which also ended up going in the wrong direction.

A few more rides around the airport and we were hysterically laughing at the craziness.

Yes, eventually we got to the right terminal....caught our shuttle....had a light dinner at the hotel...still laughing at our previous antics.

Time for bed....alarms are set for 5 a.m.

I just want a few more days here....but, then, doesn't everyone who visits this interesting and eclectic city??
