Slept well after watching the tennis last night (Hewitt vs Gasquet), but woke at 6am and couldn’t get back to sleep!  So I messed about trying to get my laptop working and managed to wake Vick so she wasn’t best pleased.

The morning was a dead loss in some respects.  Our package of documents arrived from Florida at the hotel this morning and we had to deal with signatures and finding a Notary to officialise the documentation.  Very stressful but we got it all done by lunchtime.

Headed out and grabbed lunch at a cafe down Bush Street.  Carried on to walk through Chinatown and ended up at Pier 9, then we walked around the piers towards Pier 39.  Generally chilled out and took in the sights.  Gorgeous weather – clear blue skies, warm temperatures yet a nice cool breeze.

Pier 39 was mad busy with tourists, and we came across some entertaining sealions. 

Stopped for a beer at the Blue Mermaid which had an excellent selection of beers. 

Went for the Samuel Adams Boston Lager which slid down without hitting the sides!

Got a taxi back to the hotel and preparing to meet up with one of Vick’s old friends for dinner.
