Throwback: Alcatraz Island

Alcatraz Island or The Rock is located in San Francisco, California. It used to be a military prison and a federal penitentiary. Now, it is a national recreation area under the care of the National Park Service. Hubby and I visited in 2010.  

Visitors take a ferry from Pier 33 to Alcatraz Wharf. Those who are planning to visit will find it convenient to book tickets online in advance at


It was interesting to see ruins and landmarks of the island, especially the prison.


If I had known I’d be blogging about Alcatraz 5 years later, I would’ve taken more pictures. 😔
