Alcatraz + Fisherman's Warf

Day 3

sunny

Sorry guys, exhausted for the night... I'll upload pictures later.

Later:

Okay lets start out with the view from our hotel... in the morning there is this dreadful smog/fog or whatever you want to call it. Although, it's quite a beautiful view at night. Today, at least, it was really sunny out.

Since it took me over an hour to upload just 3 photos... I'll have to upload more later when the internet stops being an idiot. So tomorrow then!

So we spent most of the day at Alcatraz. I'm sure you all know what that is, an old jail sitting on a rock outside of San Fran. It was pretty interesting, and depressing too.

So mother and I found this cool little place with all these old (and some newer) arcade games. Some were as old as the early 1800's! It was very interesting.

Overall, it was a really interesting trip, but also kind of depressing too. Prison life is never fun, and they had some gory tails to tell about the place. If you ever visit Alcatraz, make sure you do the audio tour, it was amazing!

Probably fog. Smog is more LA's thing. (Fog is basically low clouds, whereas smog is pollution.) Nice view, though.

Also: You know you're in the SF Bay area when... you see an ad for Firefox...
