San Simeon

The town of San Simeon is one of the strangest places I've ever been.  It's pretty much like finding middle America in the middle of California. There is really nothing but a strip of motels, a few restaurants (that resemble overpriced diners), and a small mini mart. It's essentially just a tourist spot to post up people who want to view the Hearst Castle.  

The castle which was designed by Julia Morgan has housed some of the most famous people in history. Carey Grant and Winston Churchill are just a few of the notable names that once lodged at this palace of a home. Most of the ceilings, walls, and pieces of art have been imported from many countries around the world and date back hundreds of years. If I could go back in time, I would have loved to attended a party or spent a weekend here. I would love to dive into the two gorgeous pools and float all my troubles away.

It was a beautiful and sunny day when we went to the magical estate of that high hill top. Here is my look and a few shots of the day.
