Alcatraz

  Oh blog! We have been out and about having such fun, we had all but forgotten about you. Let’s catch you up…

Nearly two weeks ago now we had a day out doing tourist things in SF. First up was Alcatraz! We loved the ferry ride with views back on the city.

        

A large part of the Island was closed to tourists. It is a bird sanctuary and right now it’s mating season. We saw loads of giant seagulls having a grand old time.    

The cell block audio tour is fantastic! It was also spooky to see the place so perfectly preserved from its final days as a penitentiary  in the 1960s.
