We did the earlybird tour and were the first group on the island on a beautiful Saturday (or was it Sunday?) morning. We'd booked online prior to our visit.
The audio tour really was outstanding, as we'd been told. The island is fascinating and I loved sitting outside in the sun, listening to the tour and looking over to the city thinking about what it would have been like to be a prisoner or a warden on the island.
The sky was cloudless and there was an eerie juxtaposition in our photos of the fallen down warden house with beautiful blue sky beyond, and California Gulls nesting in the old chimney.
