A new day, and lots more new things to see and enjoy. After being refreshed and awake from a walk on the beach it was time for the main destination for the day : Hearst Castle. I didn't book the excursion in advance, but that was no problem at all. Of course it was off season when I was there (May). The whole tour took a couple of hours, but it was well worth the time.

When I arrived at Hearst Castle, I really wondered if I would like it. It was so touristy, busloads of people were brought to the Castle.... But I was proven wrong... I really enjoyed it! Hearst Castle is located on the coast, close to the town of San Simeon.

Take a look at my San Simeon page for more photos and info.
