Coast Starlight & San Francisco again

I last blogged just prior to our evening meal on the ‘Coast Starlight’ o/n train (for us) to Emeryville, just inland from San Francisco.

Prior to dinner we travelled through spectacular Oregon woodlands.

I’ve never used a sleeper on a rail- service before. In just over two weeks I’ll do it again, as a group from our church at Oxley head out to Charleville.

Anyhow, imagine a very confined space, in which two seats are converted to bunks. I took the top one, complete with protective strapping in case I rolled out! Getting up & down tested by long-limited athletic dexterity indeed. I did manage some sleep however, though Dale didn’t. Quite a challenge getting changed in an incredibly confined space the next morning. When I say incredibly I mean it.

We enjoyed a nice breakfast, disembarked at Emeryville, took the pre-booked bus to our downtown SF hotel, to find we couldn’t check I for another 3 hours. We were so tired! Took a taxi to Fisherman’s Wharf looking fruitlessly for a record shop. Back at hotel, finally checked in and slept for about 3 hours – really needed that!

Enjoyed dinner at a nearby Denny’s and were asleep by about 9; ready for another 3 am wakeup and then heading to Cleveland, Ohio – meeting up as much- anticipated with Dale’s Dad & her sister Diana.
