Alcatraz Island is a beautiful place. I thoroughly enjoyed the flowers, birds, views of the bay, and the decaying parts of the prison. It is a must when traveling to the San Francisco area. Just be sure to get your tickets ahead of time. They sell out 2-3 weeks in advance during the summer. The night and early bird cruises are the best.
Here is my photo “Flowers at Sunset over the Officer’s Club” I love the cool colors of the flowers in the shade against the warm colors of the sun on the building.
