After a very leisurely start at the Courtyard Marriott (it was nice for the last day, even it we got a surprise when parking was$47US a day). We checked out to park near the SF Cable Car line terminal until it was time to go to the SF Airport in the evening.
We visited a great Music store where Lynette picked up hard-to-get sheet music. The Cable Car ride through older SF, up and down the steep streets, and ending at the harbour area was great. It really gave you the feel of classic SF. At the harbour we went to a Teddy Bear factory for a tour and made two bears. Then wandered the piers and harbour shops, picking up an SF shirt for our house/Moxy sitter Andrew. We had a great lunch at a bakery and saw many great shops, busters (sadly, though, no jugglers) on Pier 39, plus a fine view of Alcatraz Island . It was a very full day to finish the trip.
We took the other cable car route back to the car, seeing more of classic SF, and staggered into the municipal parking garage (where I noted that they charge $375US for monthly parking).
We picked up some dinner and headed to the Airport, figuring to drop the car and relax there for a timely checking at United.
Little did we know…
