home again!

I didn't expect so much to post about today, but I had my first tea on a train from a tea trolley, found my favorite peach schnapps never available in the USA at Heathrow duty-free, and for our last "pub" drink picture of our trip, I even found a new cider Old Rosie's cloudy scrumpy that tastes suspiciously like my homebrew, perhaps the same strain of British ale yeast! Well it tasted like my homebrew about a week extra fermenting than the flavor I prefer, but definitely better than Strongbow or Blackthorn. :)



Our flight was delayed a whole hour because the plane didn't arrive on time, but after they tried to sell us an upgrade to Economy Plus for more leg room, I'm glad we didn't bother, since we had one of the upgraded 777s on the way home today, with the enhanced on-demand entertainment AND enough leg room my knees did not touch the seat in front of me...amazing! When walking past it didn't look like any more leg room than the Economy Plus seats.



I watched 3 movies & slept a bit since I could lean on the wall at the window seat, then since they were trying to make up time, they had enough re-routes that we were coming in directly south into San Francisco, on a clear day so it was a gorgeous view of the Golden Gate and the whole bay! I'd never flown in that direction, at least not in daylight or without fog, and it was a very nice welcome home!
