Breakfast at Boudin at Fisherman’s Wharf. 

Followed by Alcatraz. Lovely staff. The headsets tour gives a detailed history. Al Capone’s stay. Escapees, riots, murders. It’s oppressive, but alive with memories imprinted on bare walls. Proper punishment. There are these little flies that kept landing on us. aaaargh! Also Tip..Don’t dare get seen eating, or they will have you! Great views of a misty San Francisco.  Boxticked. ✅ 

We then went back to Pier 39 for lunch, rather strong cocktails 🍸 at Players Sports Grill & Arcade. We kept seeing this little green boat bobbling about in the bay. Looked a bit choppy! So for $15 dollars well spent. A hilarious boat trip later with Captain Ryan, the BeforeYouDieGuy where we got to drive it. It was a good day. 

 Wandering the streets for a foot massage. Then feeling the need for a sleep. Ange and I rested while Adele, Rob and Julie enjoyed the night bus tour… windy! After doing YMCA and freezing their jalapeños off. Bless them.
