Today we are putting on our prison stripes and heading to one of my favorite "tourist" spots in San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz.  Also known as The Rock.  Once a prison, now you can take a ferry over for a walking tour of the prison.

As a fun play on the theme I made a card with black and white stripes to highlight the You Rock die from Ellen Hutson's Essentials by Ellen.  She's one of our sponsors.   That reminds me, I need to go grab my coupon code and do some shopping.  ;)
