Today we got a Lyft down to Pier 33 for our 10:30 trip to Alcatraz. The ferry took about 12 minutes wharf-to-wharf, on a beautiful blue-sky day.

On the island, we were issued with our mp3 players, for a quite good 45 minute  recorded tour of the prison.

All in all, actually a very good little trip out to The Rock. We had a little packed lunch with us, so we had a little bite while we waited for the ferry back to town.


We then took a little walk up to Fishermans’ Wharf, and had a wee rest before Lyfting back to our motel.
