The journey begins

We started our next 180 around the world journey on Saturday with a flight from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. When we landed there was a break in the rainy weather so after checking in at the Fairmont Hotel, we walked down two very steep blocks on Mason Street for a late lunch at a lovely Bistro, Aaliment. We watched the 49er/Seahawks game (sorry, Deb), while enjoying the food and drink – not at all crowded since it was mid afternoon.

The Fairmont is a really beautiful hotel. We were pretty tired and it started to rain so we stayed around the hotel the rest of the day.

After breakfast on Sunday we were on the first shuttle to our home for the next 180 days, the Oceania Insignia!

    Bon Voyage to you both. Bill and I will be following your blog, living your adventure vicariously. Missed Insignia and your intrepid fellow sailors on the Cabo leg. We were still shoveling feet of snow at Tahoe and dodging air cancelations to get back to our sunny Baja home. Keep those photos coming. Fair winds and following seas.
    Tori 🙂
