I paid $10 for a taxi to the Wharf, having learned my lesson about the hills of San Francisco the day before. I walked around for a bit, saw a huge group of sea lions (which are noisier than a flock of seagulls):

BTW, if the much-discussed Marina district of Toledo is to be like the Fisherman's Wharf/Pier 39 of San Francisco, then I am all for it. Get 'er done Carty.

I boarded the ferry to Alcatraz, and headed out to the island.

I took the audio tour, where they give you a MP3 player and headphones, and you walk around the cellhouse as directed by the guy on the tape. I highly recommend it.

All in all, a neat place, but it did not feel spooky in any way.
