AKA San Pedro. We were docked at the Pier before 0600. The view of the sunrise which was also right after 0600 –
was amazing. And even the cranes looked interesting against the sky
As a turnaround day, the ship wanted everyone off as early as was feasible. Cabins empty NLT 0800. There was a mad rush for coffee on the part of most passengers. I grabbed a couple of croissants from the 5th Deck cafe thus missing the insanity that is an open buffet on departure morning.
We caught the shuttle bus to LAX then hung out till we hit the “4 hour” window. After dropping luggage, we cleared customs, security, and hung out at our gate. Lunch was a pizza shared between Miriam & I. Our flight departed ~1500 and we were on the ground in Oakland by 1615. Fast forward through the usual hike to baggage claim, luggage recapture, mono-rail to BART, then Orange Line train to North Berkeley where George picked us up.
I am wiped. Other than opening some mail, I am not dealing with anything else till morning included my suitcase.
