Los Angeles - Day 4

Los Angeles - Day 4 (11/18/2006)

Today we drove all over the greater L.A. area visiting sites on our list of places to see. We started with Santa Monica, walking the historic pier, watching beachgoers try to find the water in the fog. Then we drove to another Laurel & Hardy film site, the house that they trashed in their best silent short "Big Business". We visited a museum that spoofed museums, the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Then we headed back to Hollywood and walked along Hollywood Boulevard one last time, finding Karl Dane's star on the Walk of Fame, and visiting two of his past residences.
