The Lombard Motor Inn was a clean hotel in a very good location for many activities in the Fishermen's Wharf area. We were able to park the campervan on the main level (NOTE - The lower level is not high enough for the van) and leave it there for 3 days while we bussed, taxied or walked around the city. We had a coffee machine in the room so with a few breakfast supplies (yogurt, cereal, milk), we were able to have a leisurely breakfast in our room.

We did a runner this morning. Well we would have paid for our pitch but the office still wasn't open and there was nobody around. Most campsites leave envelopes out for you to pay and put the money in a out of hours box - but not this one so it was free. It was a lousy pitch anyway!

There were some cute little hummingbirds flitting around the flowers on the way up and some cool little tunnels and things too. It was pretty nice.

10:30 was the time our boat to Alcatraz departed. We got up wayyyy too early in my opinion, but it turned out to be a good thing in the end. Our boat was leaving from the pier 33 and we were planning on parking somewhere close to 39 and walking to 33. However, the GPS didnīt know where 39 was so we put in the Pier 40 because we figured itīd be right next to eachother.
HA HA HA. Now go and look at the map of SF piers. ...
I know I went in with an open mind and the Pura Vida definitely took hold. Don't worry though, we are still flying back, as I write. The situation might have been different though if we weren't required to buy our return flights before we got here. :)
What an amazing trip. Costa Rica was even more beautiful and peaceful than I remembered from our last trip. The weather is superb, we wore shorts during the day and long sleeves ...
No matter where I go or what I do, nothing ever feels quite as sweet as returning home. This time is no different; with the timing of my birthday today and Thanksgiving next week, it couldn't feel more right to be home. Best of all, I get to spend my birthday with Eliza and Daniel - nothing could be sweeter!
