    ... the prison. Fantastic stories that highlight the rich history from the prisoners, guards and their families viewpoint that lived on the island. An amazing place to visit!

    After this, we headed back to the San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Club for an Easter meal. Again we were blown away by the hospitality of Tony Wells and his club, the meal was amazing and what was needed after a long day sightseeing. The boys ...

    ... which saved us $30 although we did make a donation. We even had a nice Dim Sum basket for brunch in the museum's cafe.

    After that we had to make our way to Stern Grove which is away from the city proper. We got on a trolley street car and asked the driver if we were going in the right direction and he very kindly told us we should catch the underground street car and told us which one to catch. He even gave us a free ...
