HOLLYWOOD

Wow! Look who's on the walk of fame (Just kidding). This star actually belongs to Mr. Cruise. I photo shopped his name out and added mine. We went to Los Angeles today. We saw the walk of fame and other attractions. The Hollywood sign was huge; we could see it from really far away. This is a picture of it from the street. The sign is on public property so you’re not allowed to climb the mountain to look at it (probably to stop graffiti and stuff). The walk of fame was pretty cool I didn’t know most of the stars because they were pretty old. This is a picture of me beside Marilyn Monroe’s star. We saw the hand and foot prints of some of the stars beside this huge movie theatre. Most of the women were wearing high heels so they had really strange looking foot prints. C3P0’s footprints were kind of weird this is a picture of them. We drove down sunset boulevard and some of the famous peoples houses (no stars though)

Surf Lessons


My brothers and I are taking surf lessons every Tuesday and Thursday and there really fun. I can stand up on a surf board now and everything. But, the majority of the time on a surf board is spent paddling. First you have to paddle out to sea over the waves and then when a wave comes we have to paddle really fast to catch it and we usually have to paddle south a lot because we drift north. This is a picture of me riding a wave by the way. The tight black, gray and yellow suit that I’m wearing is called a wet suit. A wet suit is used for keeping people warm in the not so warm water (not that we have to worry about that in San Diego or anything). Anyway now we can leave San Diego with a bit more than a tan and taste for traffic because were surfers! (Not very good ones though)
