As you know I visited Alcatraz last June the day after I arrived in San Francisco as it was one of the places I had wanted to visit for a very long time!

Quick note: If you are visiting San Francisco and plan to visit Alcatraz you need to book tickets in advance, sometimes they are booked up at least a month in advance.

Would I recommend visiting Alcatraz? – Absolutely – I had the best time, it was everything I expected and more and I could have spent even longer there than I did.  What is great about your Alcatraz ticket is that whilst you are on a specific ferry out to the Island, you can come back on any ferry, which means you can spend as long as you want there.

Though do take a coat, it is very grey and windy on the Island.  It was sunny around San Francisco and strappy top weather, but I am grateful that I wore jeans, converse and took a cardigan and coat with me.  Layering is key for the Island, and the ferry (it is so windy and cold), plus you do need to be wearing sensible shoes!  I am normally a flipflop girl, but was grateful for enclosed shoes, it is rough terrain and cold!

So here is the link to the photos I took on my phone,  I will get my fancy camera photos up as soon as possible.  Some of you have asked why I took photos on both, and the main reason was so I could share as much of my holiday with you all on social media and on my blog whilst I was away.  I didn’t take my MacBook Pro with me so I would not have been able to upload photos for you to see whilst I was away, or input them into the blog posts I wrote when I was in America.

Do give the Lawyer In The Making page a like on Facebook, and don’t forget to share the page with your friends!
