Watery Wednesday #84

As mentioned in my previous post, in October of last year we visited the Coit Tower in San Francisco. These are some of the views we took from the top. We had incredible weather as you can see. In the top photo you can see the Golden Gate Bridge and in the bottom photo on the left hand-side is the famous prison, Alcatraz which is located in the middle of San Francisco Bay. You can find out more about the history of Alcatraz if you click right here.

Hi Denise -- I love this post and love your header shot even more. I used to read your blog all the time, but somehow lost track of it. Sallie (thankful that I found you again on WW!)

Oh there's just something to be said about being close to or on the water. When we lived in Alaska we would go out of Valdez harbor for halibut fishing at least twice a summer. I like subtle reminders of days gone by. Thanks for visiting my site and leaving your kind comments.

I saw the film "Alcatraz" and I never thought that the place surrounding it is very spectacular.

I have been to San Francisco many times but never actually get into the Coit Tower. What amazing sights both inside and outside of the tower.
