When I started talking to people about our trip to San Francisco everyone told me to make time for Alcatraz. I knew I really wanted to visit this attraction and get the full experience of the tour and learning all of the history. Lucky for us on Day 2 the group we were with had planned for a night tour and party on Alcatraz.
I was fine walking around and learning about the history. Even seeing some of the cells was OK, but then they started talking about how the prisoners escaped it started to get creepy. They had their cells set up the way they looked when they passed the guard inspections each evening while they were planning their escape and that was pretty creepy. Then some of the park rangers showed us how the guards opened and closed the cell bars and that loud clanging that repeatedly happened was what put me over the edge! I got chills and was ready to get outside and get some fresh air. Yikes! It was pretty spooky, but I did love learning about the history!
There were tons of food stations set up and we loved the tacos and pasta stations best. After dinner was a real treat...Randy Houser giving an acoustic concert! We love him and love his hit song, "We Went" right now so I was so excited to see him perform. Little Boo-Boo loves that song so I videoed and sent it to him. :-)
There weren't a ton of country music fans there so we were able to get right up front for a close-up view of the concert. As soon as he sang a Garth Brooks song though, the place all broke into song! It was so fun!
