Here are pictures recording our long weekend summer vacation to Hearst Castle on the central coast of California.
This is a California state park.

At the beach at the bottom of the coastal mountains near Cambria where we spent the night before going to the Castle.

Passing time until our tour bus leaves for the castle. Nobody is allowed to drive up to the castle in their own car.
You must park at the visitor center and buy a ticket to board a bus to take you to the castle grounds.


If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

More photos as we continued our tour. We were very lucky. We ended up being the only two people on this tour with
a tour guide who has been doing this for 12 years. She told us we might as well have been in a private tour which would
have cost us about 12 times more than what we paid.

Photos of my favorite part of the park. The indoor pool. It is 10 feet deep at all parts. The ladders are made of carved marble.
All the tiles were placed by hand and took years to complete.
