since jordan had never experienced alcatraz, we thought this would be a worthwhile addition to the trip. if you have never been, we highly reccomend you go. sooo interesting..... at any rate, here is the ferry we took out to the bay.
jordan and tilly on the boat... and a teeny tiny golden gate bridge in the background.aproaching "the rock."
just one of the cell blocks inside...
jordan in solitary confinement. the tour is a personal audio tour which is neat because you can go at your own pace. plus, it's narrated by former guards and inmates... and, it includes really cool background noises that make you feel like you are walking the halls of an occupied prison. and last but not least, here is the view of s.f. from alcatraz.
later that night we met up with family in concord to watch my nephew's high school volleyball game, and then went out to eat at red robin. it was such a fun day!
