On Thursday morning 6th Nov, I took a boat trip to Alcatraz and found it to be a fascinating tour. Highly recommended - a San Francisco 'must do', but to do the place justice a good 4 - 5 hours is needed, so you should plan to have a hearty early brunch, be on the 11:00am ferry and expect to catch one of the last ferries off the island between 4:00 & 5:00pm. Only water is allowed on the island - no food (you can get ...

The girls weren't hungry ( strange but true!) so Mike and I went out for food. It is so cool walking the streets we loved it. We saw four Fire Trucks shut down a street briefly only to disappear just as quick! Must have been a false ...
Beautiful drive through the Napa Valley for our last drive in the RV. Grape vines as far as the eye could see even with the odd Golf course that snaked through the middle - what more could a man want?! We spent the evening sampling the local vinos in front of a roaring campfire where the kids toasted marshmallows and melted chocolate until they felt sick! Off to San Fran in the morning as we near the end of our road ...
