Saturday morning we had a tour booked to Alcatraz. We really lucked out with the weather – very sunny and warm. We took the audio tour around the old prison. This is definitely something worth seeing on a trip to San Francisco.
After our we got back to Pier 33 we were starving for some lunch, so off to Pier 39 we went. After some clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl Suz and I hung out watching the sea lions sunning themselves and making tons of noise.
After that it was back to Union Square for some shopping, then an early dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant called Aux Delices. I meant to go for my usual noodle bowl with grilled chicken on top, but I was swayed by a glass noodle dish with crab and prawns. It was so yummy….and I would have loved some of the hot chili sauce they had on the side but I figured that wasn’t such a good idea…
Back to the hotel to get race numbers pinned on, clothes and gear check bags sorted out and time to turn in for an early night.
