California Trip

ALCATRAZ ISLAND
So interesting! I highly suggest anyone heading over to San Fransisco to take the ferry over. It was so foggy that day so we didn't get any pictures of the island until we were basically on top of it. The tour was self guided which was nice. One of the photos toward the bottom is a shot of a cell where a inmate escaped through a vent in the wall using a stolen spoon. This inmate and 2 others escaped and were never found. Most presume they drowned. After we ferried back to the city we checked out the tacky picture that they took of us before we left the wharf. They turned out so cute that I somehow managed to convince Anthony to buy 2 5x7's. You couldn't buy just one. The total came to $22 dollars!!! Ridiculous. It was the only souvenir we came home with.

I love your pictures! You are very talented! The only thing I remembered about Alcatraz was the ferry ride- so I had a blast looking at these and remembering that I once saw the same things.
