The afternoon was all about our trip to the famous Alcatraz ( Island of sea birds) and former prison. A definate 'must do' and a great boat trip into San Francisco Bay, included as well!
On our way back to the hotel we stopped off at Pier 39 to see the sea lions basking on the pontoons.
A great first day.
