In “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows,” Dobby died as a free elf. Filmed at the Freshwater West Beach in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Fans built a memorial for Dobby on the beach. Visitors leave behind painted rocks, trinkets, and socks in tribute.

The National Trust Wales conducted an eight-month environmental review. Those items are bad for the wildlife. Officials may remove the memorial to prevent damage. Keep your painted rocks and trinkets at home.

Honor Dobby by giving new socks to a homeless shelter.

The blog became a book, “Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen,” in 2005. The book became a movie, “Julie & Julia,” starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams, in 2009. If you read the book or seen the movie, you would think her life was all sunshine and roses.

Since I visited before the day before Halloween, the store was picked over like a carcass. This short video shows the highlights with “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett.
