ALCATRAZ ISLAND


We purchased our tickets
ahead of time, on line.
There is a fairly good snack bar at Pier 33
where you wait for your boat. 








Before visiting Alcatraz,
we watched the 1979 movie,
"Escape from Alcatraz" which was filmed here
since the jail was closed in the early 1960s.
Below are some of the movie props left behind.
Another good movie is the "Birdman of Alcatraz!"
This was a time when prison was a punishment 
and not rehab!
The warden's home.







An Inescapable Experience!! 
Well worth your time!

Looking down the heart of the City,

A DAY AT THE ZOO!






















When my girls were young and the zoo was called The Atlanta Zoo, we had a family pass and would visit in the late afternoons and sometimes in the evening. 
Summer of 1990
The city changed the name to Zoo Atlanta and
over the years, the zoo has grown and changed,
just as my two girls. 

July 1999
Birthday Outing with GirlFriends! 
You're never too old to visit the zoo -
With your Kids and now the Grandkids!
