Honeymoon: Hollywood Boulevard

Hollywood Walk of Fame--some of the stars are blank, waiting to be given to the next big thing...

Walt Disney

Matt Groening

Big Bird

Grauman's Chinese Theater

Dick Van Dyke

Frank Sinatra

Julie Andrews

Helen Mirren

Sean Connery

Steve McQueen

Sophia Loren

Cary Grant

Ginger Rogers--her feet were so tiny!

Fred & Ginger, next to each other

The Marx Brothers share a big slab

Harry Potter cast

Maurice Chevalier

William Powell & Myrna Loy

Shirley Temple

Roy Rogers and Trigger

Humphrey Bogart

Meryl Streep

Sidney Poitier

Gregory Peck

Michael Caine

Clark Gable

For some strange reason, there are people in costumes taking pictures with all of the tourists on Hollywood Boulevard.  I can't figure out if they make a living this way, or if they're just eccentric...

This guy's Spiderman costume was really badly done--Pudd's is better than this one!

Charlie Chaplin

Betty White

Doris Day


Don Rickles!  My favorite!

We went to the Disney's Soda Fountain to get us in the spirit for the next day's trip to Disneyland

They were delicious!

Dolby Theatre, where the Oscars are held

El Capitan theatre--no awards shows, just a very cool old theatre across the street from Dolby

I love all the palm trees--and you can see the Hollywood sign on the hill in the distance

We went to California Pizza Kitchen in the shopping centre next to the Dolby Theatre--I finally got to have my Pear & Gorgonzola pizza again,  and Richard tried a crazy habanero one that was really zingy

Hollywood sign through the viewing telescopes

It was crazy to see it in real life--like the first time you see any well-known landmark, it seems unreal!
