The Hearst Castle was about 40 miles up the coast from Morror Bay. Great drive with lots of flat beach.
This was taken at the bottom of the entrance to the Castle . It 's about 5 miles up the road to the castle and that might not seem much in todays time but you have to keep in mind this was built in the 20's and everything had to be taken up via horse and wagons.
The old electric panels and fuses were so barbaric and antique that it's hard to believe they were some of the first to have electricty. Lots of tapistry's and wood trim.
The tours were broken up into 4 segments because there are so many things to see. We did the inside dining and media area, which included the pool area's insdie and out.
We missed the bedroom area and the 2 other tours. Maybe some day we will get back.
This would be a good time for others to fill us in on the other area's we missed.
