After arriving at the San Francisco Airport we found that the reservations through United for our Air Canada Flight were not correct so we made our way back to the United section and had to have the same reservation confirmed by United. Fortunately, Sheila's timing to get to the airport gave us the opportunity to make the changes and still get on the flight to Toronto. The flight went well but we encounter a delay, because of a thunder storm at the airport so our flight was delayed for an additional two hours. This was in addition to being sent to the wrong gate and waiting there until we noticed that our flight number was not listed. We were able to find a nice restaurant near the wrong gate and enjoyed a leisurely dinner for the both of us.
The flight was at 10:00 pm and we arrive in Heathrow at 9:18 am on Monday. The film selections gave us the opportunity to see the "Book of Eli" and "Dear John" and Sheila saw "Alice in Wonderland".
We were greeted by Catherine at the terminal, with a smile that was a welcomed sight after the tensions in our flight. We arrived at the house and it was great to see Connor and Ryan and meet Magic the new boarder collie. Sheila and I caught naps in the afternoon to catch up on our jet lag. Dave got home from work in the early evening, and Catherine treated us to a fine chicken dinner. It was really wonderful relaxing environment after our lengthy flight. We watched the Wimbledon matches and the world cup matches in the early afternoon and evening.
Lazy morning with a nice shower made our day easier. We did drive around in the morning to check out a pool for exercise and stopped at some stores for supplies.
