Our Adventure

A little road trip down Highway 1 to San Simeon to see Hearst Castle. It would have been nice if someone told us Highway 1 was closed due to a landslide 20 miles before our destination! A 2 hour detour through a windy pass up and down a mountain to bypass the landslide and 6 carsick Ostrins later, we made it to San Simeon and had a fun time.

The Castle was well worth the trip. We were going through record breaking rain (for this time of year) and shrouded in heavy fog the whole time, which didn't make for great pictures, but made for a fun experience.

The gardens were well tended.

The architecture was lavish.

The rooms well appointed.

Ponds, fountains and statues abounded.

And it was hard to resist taking a dip in this pool (or should I say bath).
