Installment #9: San Simeon 2001

Following out East coast trip, our next trip out of town was a short three day visit to San Simeon and Hearst Castle. There isn't much to say about this trip. This was our first of many trips to Hearst castle. We did two of the tours, visited the elephant seals, and enjoyed some time in Cambria before we headed back home. The tours were interesting. The consumption is conspicuous and way over the top. I would like to think that if I had that kind of money that I wouldn't waste it on the stuff William Randolf Hearst purchased. My tastes are simple and my needs are relatively few. A huge cathedral like home with a private zoo and all sorts of antique religious icons is not me. It fascinating to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.

This was a small trip but it has influenced us greatly since we have taken all our guests to Hearst Castle, the elephant seals, and Cambria. This short trip was the first of many to this area.
