San Francisco, California
We took the bus early in the morning to Muir Woods. We were the first bus there, so it was very peaceful and magical in the woods. Our driver, Kenneth, did a superb job narrating along the way and even sang a song or two. If Whitney Houston were still with us, she'd have to keep an eye out for Kenneth...but, I digress. Then it was off to Sausalito where our family had lunch at "Spinnakers" on the water. We dined on great food while watching the sailboats float by. It wasn't cheap, but I thought it was worth it. Then we headed back to "Frisco" (please note: apparently the locals hate it when we use this moniker) to head over to Alcatraz via ferry. The audio tour on Alcatraz is top notch. It was an interesting tour that really gave you a sense of day-to-day life on Alcatraz with a few jailbreaks mixed in. Our family of 5 (kids ages 11, 15 and 17) all enjoyed this trip aside from some in-fighting amongst the children in Muir Woods. The woods would have been much more peaceful and magical at times without the children.
