Breakfast in the hotel was just scrummy. Mary had French toast Malcolm had pancakes;
The crossing to Alcatraz was just fine. It only takes about 15 minutes and was very smooth. We were due to catch the 10 o’clock but we got there early and they offered us a 9-30 slot. Very few people and clear sky and sunshine.
Malcolm’s two little toes needed plasters. Altogether “Agghh! Shame!” And he clean forgot to put his knee support on to help his torn cartilage. Twit. Anyway he managed to hobble round the inside for the audio tour which was very interesting.
Back on the mainland and lunch and then another cable car ride back to Union Square. Mary went for a look round Macy’s and Malcolm stayed put and watched the world go by. Most of them off their heads and talking to themselves. I now know where the idea for “Shaun of the dead” was created and all the other zombie movies. It really is a very sad state of affairs and not a cop in sight.
So tomorrow we are off at 9 pm with Air New Zealand for our 14 hour flight to Auckland NZ. And then an internal flight up to Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands in the far north. Somewhere along the line we lose Thursday. So there will now be a blog blackout for some 48 hours I guess! (Hurrah! I hear you cry) We have not planned yet what sights to visit tomorrow but hopefully it won’t be too knackering, so we don’t have to hobble to the plane!
Take care folks and more news on Friday night! We hope! M & M
