Day 57: Going Home

Janet making sure Glen goes home to Sue
Today is the day we fly home, but since we only leave in the evening we had a whole day here first. We also had arranged for a late checkout at 3:30 so after we packed up our bags we headed down to take out a couple of paddle boards one last time.

The ocean was still very choppy but we were determined. However neither of us could catch our balance enough to stand up, so we paddle out to the anchored boat in the bay on our knees, and then called it quits. Had a last breakfast at Panino's of bacon and egg on a baguette and a soy latte.

Afterwards we lounged reading by the pool and worked on our tans until it was time for Jorge to pick us up and take us to the bus for the airport. We had been told to allow three hours at the airport, so we arrived at 5pm for our 7:45pm flight only to find the place empty. We checked in without any delay and spent the last of our pesos at the bar.

The flight was on time and arrived at Vancouver just before midnight. We cleared customs quickly and walked out into the freezing weather that Vancouver has been experiencing. What an incredible shock to the system!

We picked up Janet's car from the long-term parking and she dropped me off at home around 1:30am.
