My friend April had a training class in San Francisco, and had decided to take a bit of a vacation afterwards. She invited me to join her for a tour of the Napa valley and Bay areas. We spent a long weekend driving around, sampling wines, and just having fun. One of my favorite things was seeing Alcatraz. The old prison has such a history in popular culture, that I just had to see it in person. Other fantastic sights were Fishermans Wharf, Russian Hill, and all the other typical tourist spots. It’s a beautiful city, but surprisingly expensive for something that far north in California!
