Back to Alcatraz

January 21, 2019

Six years after our initial visit we finally made it back to Alcatraz. My wife’s father was in town, and since he’s interested in all sorts of history we took him to Alcatraz. We still didn’t manage to make it to the island early (our daughter had her first cavity filling, so we couldn’t catch a boat until the afternoon), but with the partial government shutdown I think they’d canceled all the walking tours anyway. Maybe next time (and I still think it’d be fun to do a night tour).

Visiting the island is still fun: history, views of the bay, nature and wildlife. This time my daughter decided to get her own audio guide; last time she didn’t grab one, but then ended up monopolizing my wife’s shortly into the tour. So this time both of them got to enjoy the whole audio tour.
