Fun, Fun Fun!!

Wednesday, February 23 - The Rock (San Francisco, CA)


Yesterday we had to rush home in the afternoon because I started to not feel well and I needed to use the water closet. Well I must have gotten a bug because it continued for the rest of night.

Jesse had left over Chinese I made a grilled cheese for myself hoping to plug my bottom.

Well I had a rocky night, not feeling a whole lot better this morning, but we had made reservations to go to Alcatraz and that’s what we did. I didn’t eat anything thinking fasting might be the best idea.

We headed out the door about 10:15 and drove to San Francisco which is about one hour away from our camp site.

We took the Bay Bridge over to Pier 33. This bridge was much bigger and longer then the Golden Gate.

The boat we took over to the Island


The island


Carved by natural and human forces, Alcatraz served the army as fortress and military prison, and the department of justice as a maximum-security federal prison.

Once on the island you have to walk up to the cell house which is equivalent to walking up 13 story building.


We took our time because I didn’t feel very strong today, Jesse was very patient with me.

When you arrive you see a film on the history of “The Rock”, then you walk to the shower room


where you receive your audio headphones, and they instruct you where to go throughout the cell blocks.

Here are some of our pictures.


Unruly inmates were segregated in Cell block D known as isolation.

It was a very nice tour and very interesting.

We returned home and I made turkey minions, baked potato and green beans for dinner. I was feeling much better so I was glad it was only a 24 hour bug.

I would love to take that tour. I will have to keep that in mind when we go out there.
