So I've been on an amazing trip to California this month. We drove down the coast starting in San Francisco and finishing in LA. There was so much I was looking forward to on our trip but Alcatraz was definitely top 3!!
It might have had something to do with the gorgeous Californian blue sky coming out just as we were traveling over to the island but I have to say I really enjoyed it!! I found the island bright and full of life. There was some beautiful flowers growing in broken shell's of building's like the Warden's house and there were birds everywhere! There was a audio tour of the main cell house which I found really interesting. It's definitely worth a visit.
