Hi David,

Alcatraz prison!!

Nice scenic view with the sailing boat. I was there some 20 years ago, even remember going into Al Capone's cell. Is it still open?

Best Wishes Peter

Peter, thank you for your nice comments. Yes, the prison is still open for tourists and my kids have visited it during school outings. But you know what? I have never been there. Typical thing with the local residents. Best regards from the San Francisco Bay Area, David
