Our little Casita by the ocean

The day began with a beautiful walk with Sandy. I am use to seeing the sun rise over the ocean but this was still beautiful. We decided to join the horrible traffic to go see the homes of the stars. This is a one time deal because the traffic is soon bad and we could never parallel park the way these people do, bumper to bumper. I have no idea how they get their cars in and out. So we paid $15 for a parking garage by Hollywood Blvd. The tour was interesting. Some homes are big but some are not much larger than my own. They also seem to change ownership a lot. We stopped atnWill Geer's Theatricum Botanicum. His daughter Ellen has kept this going since his death, almost 40 years ago. We met her husband, super nice gentleman. He told us a little about how it was working with Will. I told him I am sure everyone says this but I CRIED when Will died as if my own grandfather had died. He was America's grandpa. We stopped and got seafood for supper. It was good but they could take lessons from "The Oyster Bar" in Elizabeth City on breading and frying their oysters. I guess I am spoiled with Sandbridge and the seafood back home.
