After getting back to my car, I decided to seek out another Starbucks. I had been thinking about food for most of the walk back from Vasona Lake.

I had considered The Cheesecake Factory, Subway and Panda Express.

But then I remembered I hadn’t had my second Starbucks of the day and I could easily pair that up with a double bacon cheese and egg sandwich.

So found a Starbucks about 2 miles down the road, which was an ideal opportunity to catch up with Vick and her struggles back home.

Luckily the cats were behaving themselves!

I finished off at Starbucks and headed to the Hilton Garden Inn, San Jose Airport – I was checking in here for my final night in San Jose.

I was happy with a standard king room this time and they had a room available at just after midday.

They tried to charge me $15 for parking, which I resisted. I didn’t pay last time, so I wasn’t going to pay this time either.

In the afternoon, after saying good night to the Vickster, I drove to the Westfield shopping mall at Stevens Creek Boulevard.

The intention was to find something nice for Vick, but all I really found were socks!

There was a sock shop that contain loads and loads of different characterised socks.

Wow – it was some sight.

On the basis that I have been barred from buying socks, it was a no-no for a present on this occasion.

At this point, it seemed rude not to pop into The Cheesecake Factory!

Something different for this visit. I ordered the starter nachos together with the Korean chicken, knowing that I would only eat a small amount in the restaurant.

I could bag the rest up and eat it in my room in the evening.

Back to the hotel and I started on my “to go” as soon as I got into my room.
