Wake up in USA for first time, bit cloudy.

I went for a walk down to Venice beach, ecclectic is the kindest word for Venice waking up.  The RV park had drifters, campers and the surf school setting up.  Picked up some juice, veggies and raison bread from the organic market on the way home.

Girls still asleep when I get home but all up eventually and over the jetlag.  In the car and off to Hollywood.  Wilshire, Sunset and Hollywood  Boulevards and then around the corner to Universal Studios.
 
Nanna hasn't been to a theme park before, is amazed how big it is and isn;t sure what to expect.
Waterworld show to start, great effects, crowd gets wet and we get to meet the actors after.  Photos with Shrek before seeing the Shrek 4D show.  The 4th D is getting wet when donkey sneezes and feeling the spiders around your feet.  The seats move also.  Plenty to see: Homer and Marge, Spongebob, Beetlejuice, Scooby Doo, Woody Woodpecker.

After a late lunch we headed back up the hugh outdoor escalators to the top lot and a bit of Paris and London sets.  Girls bought t-shirts (Isabelle Spongebob and Sophie Hollywood) and then we saw the Blues Brothers show.  Jake had John Belushi down pat and they arrived in "the car".

Drive up to the Hollywood sign and past Mann's Chinese theatre (Walk of Stars) on the way home but was almost 9pm so didn't stop.

Amanda wins three gongs today; getting into the wrong side of the car (I don't want to drive!), why are there two different one dollar bills? (they have two different sides), what is that 12 year old doing driving? he can;t see over the dash.
