Good day...many thanks for your votes and comments and to all who awarded me UA''s to follow shortly
We took a harbour cruise around Alcatraz today as well as to the bridge and back. Here are a few images of Alcatraz...Blue skies and sunshine again but quite a bit of rolling fog around ...the lead image shows the San Francisco skyline in the back ground ...all captured from a fast moving boat
Have a great day...

Hi dear
Good picture, especially when you have those picture under those conditions.
My favorite is V4 and 11 because of the clouds that are rolling and the rough sea.
Have a good trip to DC

They didn't drop you off on the island then, Colleen?! Wink There does seem to be quite a few people wandering around on there, so guess it's open to visitors, and they're not inmates! Grin Great set, showing us views many of us would not get to see Smile

A great way to see Alcatraz without landing for a tour.
I too like V4 and V11 with the San Francisco skyline.
Enjoy the next part of your tour.

Great work from a speeding Boat too Smile

Excellent set Colleen, you can see why it was such a formidable prison.

A place you would not want to be locked up in. Excellent.

Another great set and a very interesting subject, this must have been quite a scary place to be when it was in use.
