Taking It Easy

Check-out time isn't until noon, and we didn't stir ourselves out until just before 9 to collect our included breakfast. Unlike some hotels that have such breakfasts, we're allowed to take it back to the room. (I remember how bemused I was at the Holiday Inn Express Moreno Valley when we were told "You can't take food out of the dining area." That's yet another reason never to stay in that particular HIX ever again.) This meant we could kick back and watch a Heineken Cup rugby semi-final before having to get cleaned up and checked out of the room. Then we plan to head back down toward the Aquarium (we do, after all, have a second day's admission on our tickets). We'll probably start back for home a bit after lunch. We do, after all, have some work to get done this evening: Coit Carpet Cleaners are scheduled for tomorrow for the annual required-by-the-management steam-cleaning, so we need to get as much stuff off the floor as possible.
