From the impenetrable Rock to The Hard Rock

An early drop off by The Ferry Building on the commuter run and an excellent breakfast at Market Bar. Short ferry ride from Pier 33 to Alcatraz (I booked the tour 6 months ago). Well worth the $28 which includes an audio guide. This staggers the visitors around key points of interest and more importantly keeps it quiet so the chilling experience is uninterrupted by unruly visitors! Not brave enough to shut my eyes in the dark solitary confinement cell and certainly not brave enough for the night visit! The riot and the famous 1962 escape are vividly brought to life on the audio guide and we were inspired to watch Escape from Alcatraz on Netflix on our return to base whilst all fresh in our minds.
Leaving Alcatraz we headed for Fishermans Wharf and The Hard Rock Cafe.(gotta be done). Mushroom n’ Swiss eagerly devoured. Ferry ride home to Sausalito …exhausted!20130326-182014.jpg
