Wed morning we went to the rock (Alcatraz). This place was cool and erie at the same time. You felt trapped on the island and once inside it was like a tease knowing San Fran was so close, yet unreachable. Then we went to Coit Tower which had amazing views of the city, we traveled down the The Crookedest Street, and checked out Twin Peaks lookout. One of the main stops I was excited to see was the San Fran museum of modern art. I've heard nothing but good things about the facility. Unfortunately its closed on holidays and Wednesdays. Lovely. So we continued south down 101 to Monteray to see an aquarium by the bay. The person who built this was co-founder of Hewlett-Packard. The aquarium was smaller than we anticipated but very cool and interactive. A great learning facility for kids. Finally we traveled 90 miles along the steep and windy coastline in the dark. Kristi scared the hell out of me driving (she was driving good, it was the fact that there was no guard rails and 200 ft cliff to the right of me).
