Unfortunately, we could not stay in to sleep because I had The Alcatraz Tour booked for 11 in the morning. I gave both children a break from homework today. Yeah me!!!! I have to tell you, they were very grateful for that small favor. So we headed out of the hotel room by 9 am. We quickly figured out where we had to go. We were staying two minutes from Fisherman’s Wharf. We were withing walking distance. We then went to breakfast. From that point on, the day was a breeze. It turned out to be a wonderful day after we got over being tired. We didn’t have to rush anywhere. Jordan and Alex loved the ferry shuttle to Alcatraz Island. It was a bit cool for me , but I was okay.
Jordan said that he could swim from Alcatraz Island back to Pier 31 in about 5 hours. He would have no problems. I think he could PROBABLY do it…….in a little more than 5 hours……if he doesn’t get eaten by a big shark.
