San Francisco: Day 1

We have arrived safe and sound in San Francisco. The day started early with an uneventful ride to the airport in rush hour traffic, courtesy of a local van service. After check in and security we had a leisurely breakfast at the gate while we waited for the flight to board.

The plane wasn't full so we were able to get a row by ourselves. JetBlue provides seat back entertainment systems which show tv, movies and play satellite radio. We mostly watched TV, although I watched "Mr Magorium's Wonder Emporium", which was not without difficulty since the screen at my seat flipped off partway through. I was able to finish watching the movie on the screen for the empty seat. It's a decent movie although I wouldn't rush out to see it.

The trip into the hotel was also uneventful. We have a lovely corner room on the 24th floor. We're staying near the Moscone Center. From the room we can see just a smidge of the Bay Bridge, AT&T Park (home of the Giants), the park in front of the Moscone Center and the bay.

Nothing big happening tonight - we had a quiet dinner in the hotel, are going to try out the pool and then we'll be crashing early (or late depending on your perspective).

Here's a shot (through the airplane window) as we descended to the San Francisco airport.

I had celebrated my last birthday in San Francisco and booked my family package through Sheraton. It was lovely.
