San Francisco Part 2

Day 2 of San Francisco adventures started with a breakfast at the Hollywood Cafe which was really busy and very tasty. I had hash browns and a giant fruit cup.

Then a nice walk along the water


To spy on fat seals!



So many!












Alcatraz





Then it was off to Alcatraz!



We found a spot at the front of the boat that didn't make us all sick






We had no fun. No fun at all.

Man such a gorgeous day









When you arrive you get a little welcome talk, then you can watch a short film about Alcatraz, then you are free to wander. You can take an audio tour through the jail, which we did, and spend as much time as you want exploring. I have approximately a billion photos of the tour and such













































Some examples of what the cells looked like with the inmate's things




They could see and hear the city. So close, yet so far away













































The tour was great. It told you lots of stories about the inmates and people who worked on Alcatraz and everything. If you are in San Francisco and have the time I would highly recommend going out to Alcatraz. I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. Plus if it is a beautiful day like we had you get a nice little boat ride and a gorgeous view of the city. 

Once we got back it was time for lunch! There was a veggie place I had wanted to go to, but they were closed so we went to a Thai place that was nearby

I love Pad See Ew! 

Then exploring around the waterfront some more



Then a walk along the water back to our hotel. We were all pretty tired from a long day of walking around. 

But it was perfect timing as it was sunset











Later a quick dinner at Saiwalks Vietnamese restaurant (I also love Pho!)


And then off to trivia at Monaghan's. We didn't win, but we sure had fun! The next morning was just get up, get some breakfast (we went back to the Hollywood Cafe again) then off to the airport for our flight to Seattle.

San Francisco was so much fun. I really loved the city now that I had a chance to explore it. It was absolutely gorgeous and getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia was awesome. We definitely need to have more ladies trips!
