Elephants on Parade

One of the perks of living in SoCal is that lots of things happen here, including the first showing of the Elephant Parade in America. A fundraiser to help save the elephants in SE Asia, the show is spread out around Dana Point and culminates in auctioning the works of art in November.


Each one is painted by a different artist or celebrity, most of whom I didn’t know.  Instead of worrying about the who/why of the show, the daughter and I just wandered around Dana Point Harbor and enjoyed the over-the-top nature of Orange County.


Until we found this one. I have to admit, we were pretty excited to see one done by Cesar Millan, the dog whisperer. Okay, so maybe he didn’t do the art, but we’ll never know since someone was nice enough to rip the plaque off.  Whatevs, the art was super cute.


Some were a little hippy-dippy (see below).


But they were all pretty great in their own way and, as you can see, it was a beautiful day to just wander around outside.


And lookie there, even the kid had fun. 🙂
