San Francisco Day 5

On this day we visited Alcatraz, which was interesting and a little bit creepy! A ferry carried us across the bay to the prison.

Something must be very interesting down there!

Alcatraz is now a sanctuary for birds and flowers.

After leaving Alcatraz Island, we ate lunch at Fisherman's Wharf. Olivia wasn't feeling well, so she, Jimmy, Leah, and Sam headed back to the hotel for the afternoon. Julie and Clay stayed with Russ and Megan. They explored downtown San Francisco, rode a cable car, and visited Chinatown. Later that evening, Olivia felt better so Jimmy dropped us off at Chinatown for a brief shopping excursion. He picked up the rest of our party, then picked us back up, and we all returned to the hotel for the night.
