"Pete" the Pelican watches over the Malibu Pier
A wonderful bird is a Pelican,
Whose beak can hold more than his belly can.
Be it crabs, clams, or fish,
It will hold all you wish.
But I'm damned if I see how the hell he can.

Final Mission

[Updated 10/14]

After flying cross-country atop a specially modified Boeing 747, Space Shuttle Endeavor makes its way slowly through the streets of Los Angeles on its final journey from Los Angeles International Airport to the California Science Center where it will be on permanent exhibit.

Shuttle Endeavor visits the donut shop

Endeavor waits patiently

Come a little closer

Look! A spaceship coming down the street!

Excitement builds as this bizarre procession approaches

... and there it goes

Squeezing 'round the bend

Safely ensconced in a visitor pavilion at the California Science Center

On the nosie!
