Father George's Visit

We picked Father George up at LAX in late June.
Elena and Dad are standing next to Marilyn Monroe's footprints in the front of Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood. I'm not sure if it's still called Grauman's (he's dead you know), but that's how I remember it.
Here's the two of them across the street from the great old landmark (opened in 1927).
Marilyn seems to have her eye on Dad... Actually, Elena took Dad into the Hollywood Wax Museum.
We spent an afternoon at Lake Arrowhead. We three wise men ponder the imponderable.
The area around there is beautiful and full of greenery.
Next was a stop in Solvang for some ableskivers. George sampled them willingly.
Dad directed Elena in the taking of this shot. It's easy to see he has the eye of a photographer...very picturesque.
On the way back home we stopped at El Capitan beach where Dad took a dip in the ocean. Cowabunga! Here we waggle the "hang loose" sign.
We also stopped in Santa Barbara, walked the pier, and as shown here, took a brief rest at the mission.
Elena shot this picture of a pelican while we walked on the pier. Big bird, huh?!
Here's three other pelicans....er, no, I guess that's us guys, lounging on the pier while we make Elena take all the pictures.
Elena and Dad with the marina and bay in the background.
Looking out across the bay, Dad points dramatically with his finger. Looks good, huh?!
We walked a bit on the beach. This was the stairs to get up and down the cliff.
Elena and I took Dad to Scandia to play miniature golf...
...later, some tough guy was annoying Elena. I gave him a sound thrashing...
...but the guy just didn't learn his lesson. George had to give him another demonstration of superior male virility.
