The day we went to Alcatraz was warm and bright and as we waited at the dock for our little cruise ship to come take us to prison, I could feel my neck getting warm. But the people watching was fantastic. So many different nationalities, colors, and languages in one spot. While we waited in line to board the ship, we got a chuckle at a little boy behind us who was screaming, "I don't want to go to jail! I'm NOT going to Alcatraz. I hate you. I hate everything! I'm not going!" It made me thankful for my few precious child-free days.
The view from the island:
Who wouldn't want to be there?
I think everyone should have to visit Alcatraz. It will keep you on your best behaviour and make you appreciate the fact that you don't live behind bars.
