You know what? I hate flying. Okay, I don’t mind flying, but all the hoops you have to jump through to get to the airplane just stink! We started this morning leaving the hotel at 4:15. After a quick stop at McDonald’s drive-thru, we headed to a park and ride. We boarded a bus that took us to the Denver airport. We then wait in line to get "screened." After stressing over what is okay and how to lay it all out for the screeners, we made it through and had about an hour and a half wait until departure.
We have a direct flight to San Francisco on Frontier airlines.
We had a two and a half hour flight, but it only took 1.5 hours because of the time change. We quickly boarded a BART train in San Francisco and rode it underground into downtown. We then switched to a MUNI street car that took us to our hotel.
We had lunch and then killed some time looking around Fisherman’s Wharf. We caught a good view of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate bridge.
We then boarded the boat to Alcatraz. I saw this building which I know I have seen but do not know what it is…
Alcatraz was very cool. See the pictures…
So, we are back getting ready to get to bed. We have another early morning tomorrow. We are catching a bus down the street at 5:55 that will take us to the train station across the bay in Emeryville. We then board and take our train trip back to Denver.
I probably will not be able to post tomorrow since we will be on the train (unless I find a connection along the way), so my next post will probably not be until late Thursday night or Friday morning. We shall see.
