road-trip 29 march to 17 april 2004
 
San Francisco 1 - 4 April
 
Alcatraz
 
Our first stop was a trip to Alcatraz (The Rock). We got up early to join the queue for Alcatraz, only to find that there were no available spaces... so they said. A little while later there were plenty of spaces, so onto the ferry it was and off to Alcatraz.

The "Welcoming Sign" Just a cool pic....

On the way up.....

Simon in solitary confinement
   
   
   
The Warden's House... a little overgrown Jeanne, Dustin & Meg ... a little break on the walk up the hill
 
Cycling the Golden Gate Bridge
 
   
 
Our cycle started in rather foggy and very chilly conditions. Looking at the bridge there were definite thoughts in my mind about whether this was a good idea or not.... well we continued.... thankfully....
 
Little improvement the weather.... Cecil on the bridge At the end (Tiburon) of a stunning day
 
 
Napa Valley
 
With 8 of us in the mini-van off we went to Napa Valley. We visited 4 wineries (I think....!) and one for the lunch stop. Many thanks to Simon for being the designated driver.... we had a ball!
