Homeward Bound Day 30

Up early as we decided to get to the airport and have breakfast there. Traffic was light being a weekend and we were soon checked in, bags dropped and heading to the Air Canada lounge to meet up with Chad & Agnes whom flew up the previous night from Johannesburg.

We easily found them and began telling stories of our adventures in Cape Town and their Safari near Kruger Park. We saw many pictures while having a relaxed breakfast.

Our departure time was approaching so we said our goodbyes and headed to the gate for our flight to Vancouver. Their flight to Calgary left shortly after 1 o’clock local.

Away we went and I took the opportunity to read some of Marc Wolffe's "Out and About" article that he does for South African R/C Modeller. Very entertaining! The flight was uneventful except for some poor guy in the back having some heart issues. Page for a doctor etc. but we did not divert at all.

Once in YVR the paramedics were on scene and checked out the individual. We managed to get out without too much delay.   We cleared customs & Immigration and connected to our flight home to Victoria. In the door at 1500 local after a stop for groceries.

What a trip! Had some great experiences, met lots of great people and enjoyed pretty much every meal that was put in front of us. It’s time to go back on a diet and prepare for our next adventure... hey is that a pub over there? :-)
