4th April
Visited the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hollywood Museum, Griffith Observatory and Venice Beach. John Forsyth (Dynasty) had died whilst we were here. Flowers had been placed over this star😞. There were Twilight costumes in the Hollywood Museum, but we weren't allowed to take any photos (again 😞 ). Visiting Griffith Observatory allowed us to take some photos of the Hollywood sign as access was closed to drive directly up to the sign. The Griffith Observatory was used in the movie Rebel without a Cause, hence the reference to James Dean there. We had intentions of visiting some celebrity graves, but realised that we should have gone on an organised tour (the cemeteries are huge).

Wish I were there too.........
Funny I can still remember the 2007 trip my family did - exactly the same places we went, just that I was expecting a photo of you on one of those walk of fame star of Marilyn Monroe. I need more photos of you with pictures on the background. Let Wayne of Ashley take photos of you everywhere. So no twilight photos, too bad.........maybe you'll do it in Falks. So how's shopping? had enough, bargains? don't think so.............I know you will set a day just for shopping - let your boys follow you where you want to go, you're the queen so. . . . . . . . . . . . . Off to San Francisco I expect more photos of you. Always remember those are memories. Enjoy...................enjoy ..........................enjoy ......................enjoy ...................enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shopping is great in San Fran!
Bloomingdales, Macys, Nordstroms, Giorgio Armani, everything! Bought a couple of new handbags - how unusual you day. Have bought a jacket to help tackle the cold weather in Oregon next week (will be there on 15th) - Edward will just have to keep me warm if the jacket doesn't work - wouldn't that be just terrible? Will get Wayne to take more photos of me (I hate getting my photo taken). We have some more to upload from the past few days when we visited Hearst Castle on the way up here. Speak to you soon! Love Missy xx
