... us. Really cool ride, almost the best of the day.
Thought we'd bring the pace down a little, so went and saw the Water world show. **** film, but pretty entertaining show. Keeping the vibe relaxed for a bit longer, we opted for the 'Animals of Hollywood' show. Saw a few things that we need to teach our dogs out of it so they are in for a bit of schooling. We then did the 'Backlot tour'. An awesome 45 minute experience that took in all the Universal ...

Then walked back up Fairfax to Melrose and checked out the funky shops. A quick stop on La brea at Starbucks and we then headed off in to Hollywood. Took the Hollywood Walk of ...
... Bowie knife under my pillow, particularly in bear country. Fess Parker was a hero. Although, I was crushed when I found out that Ed Ames, as Mingo, was really a singer and really wasn't an Indian, in fact he was Jewish.
