It was a bit of a zoo. Big shoes kept clomping on the pavement around me, as I sat smack dap in the middle of a handprint. But I wouldn't budge. It took me a long time to find this spot.
It took me forever, searching the area in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. I was looking for the spot where two hands and two bare feet made prints in 1935.
Most of the famous actors left shoe footprints, but Shirley Temple used her feet. I like that. She is my favorite. She was kind of small... like me.
Mission San Juan Capistrano
It was very peaceful at the lily pond.
I heard about the swallows that come here in March. It's May now, but I was still hopeful. I floated blissfully on my lily pad, gazing about. It would have made my day to have seen a swallow near the historic mission!
Instead of a sweet bird sound, I felt a bump from beneath my lily pad! Then I saw something orange approaching from my left!
Next thing I knew, there were about five fish underneath me and my little pad was rocking like the boat in Jaws!
Beth actually laughed like she thought it was funny. She snatched me and placed me back in the camera bag. I do not see the humor. The mouths on those fish open very wide. That is my last ride on a lily pad.
My mom gave me this tiny bear over 25 years ago... because I like small things.
