Neville’s Wild, Wild Vacation Out West, Part V: Alcatraz

Dad and I visited Alcatraz on May 24. We took a ferry to get there. I did a Jr. Ranger program there and received another badge! Actually I thought their Jr. Ranger program was rather easy.

Alcatraz was really cool. We did an audio tour and learned a lot about Alcatraz. I liked seeing the cells (they were tiny!) and the exercise yard.


There were flower gardens there that inmates had created because they were bored. They were really neat because I hadn’t expected there to be anything like that on Alcatraz. Especially on one side of the island, it was almost peaceful with all these pretty flowers and a view of San Francisco. You could see up the streets of the city.

    I have several questions. What did Neville order for breakfast on the train? ….And who won the backgammon game between Neville and Rupert? I must say, Ms. Lizzie, of all the interesting things to see on the West Coast, YOU would have to find decomposing rats the MOST interesting!!!
