Four Rev Gals go Star Stalking

Yesterday we had a couple of hours of free time in the afternoon. We had heard that some famous people live in the gated neighborhood down the hill from the retreat center, (the same gate you have to go through to get to the retreat center.) One of the staff here helped us out. She stood with us at the overlook in the retreat center garden that looks down over the canyon and pointed out who lives where. Then we changed into our sneakers to take a walk.

We walked past Mel's house. No Mel. We walked past Olivia's house. No Olivia. We walked past Brittany's house. No Brittany--but lots of not very well hidden security cameras and five City of Malibu sanitation department containers on which were written "No Trash". Giggling hysterically about this, we decided we'd had enough star stalking and headed down the back road to main highway and beach. Just as we crossed the little bridge across the duck pond, a white Jaguar passed us going the other way. The driver had his windows rolled down and smiled a big smile at us, waved, and said, "hi!".

Dick. Van. Dyke.
