Day #305

Day 2:

Sorry that I've been MIA for a while, it's be a couple crazy days with work, school and board meetings. So where was I? Oh yeah - Day 2 of the Cali trip.

The next morning we took a fantastic ride down the Pacific Highway. If you're out in California on a visit you must drive this highway at least once during your trip. Seriously, make time for it because the views are beautiful. It was even better in Jill's convertible.

So off on the highway we went to the Hearst Castle (which to Jill's disappointment is not a Castle) and took the tour. The place is beautiful but it really is a giant Goodwill. Per our tour guide, William Randolph Hearst apparently waited until all of his rich friends were poor and then offered to buy their stuff of them for a really cheap price.
(Guess that's why he was so wealthy huh?)
So it's kinda of a sad place but the view was nice.

Here's a picture of the front pool.

And photos of the actual house...I mean castle.

After the whirlwind trip of seeing all the sites, we took off down the highway back to Monterrey to have dinner with a few DZ sisters at Sardine Factory located in historic Cannery Row area.

PS. Jill took all of these lovely photos. I'm still trying to find my computer cord.
PPS. I won ILYD! Yeah for 10 months!
