What we didnt' realise was that although it didn't feel very warm, it was very sunny and the sun got to poor Hugh's nose. It got very burnt and blistered - very painful for quite a few days.
When we had finished at the bridge we jumped back onto the bus and took it round to Pier 33 where we were getting the boat across to Alcatraz. As we had some time to spare we had a fast food lunch of a hot dog each - yum!
The trip over to Alcatraz gave us some wonderful views of San Francisco and then of Alcatraz Island itself.
Once we disembarked we made our way up to the prison and got the audio tour. If you ever go, get the audio tour! It was so worth it and made the visit extremely interesting.
