It was nice visiting... see you again next year.
Day 42 - To Home. London, We will Miss You
We finished packing up in the morning and tried to eat all of the remaining food. We arranged a car through a car service, which ended up being less expensive than Uber or Taxi to LHR has been. We had 7 rollers and 3 backpacks and were not interested in navigating the underground, even on a weekend. Because of our checkout time, we ended up at LHR 5 hours before our flight. That was good because it took nearly 30 minutes to re-balance our bags so they were all under limit (which they strictly enforce on occasion). I am glad we bought Michelle 2 bags!
During the flight, Tony opened the window shade as we passed over the east coast of Greenland. It was beautiful with jagged mountains, long fjords, ice flows, glaciers, and a huge number of icebergs. Later in the flight, just over the Sierras near Yosemite, Tony opened the window shade again to see a sea of “not clouds” (a.k.a smoke) and a huge plume coming from one of the “smaller” fires near Yosemite.

a breeze, but finding the Car Rental shuttle and navigating through construction and masses of people to get to the stop was harrowing, especially since we were very tired. A stop at IHOP, a smooth drive home, and we were happily greeted by the dog and both cats before we crashed in our own bed, at last.
