Highway 1 south from Monterey to Hearst Castle was amazing. Twisting and turning, up hill and down hill, around every corner another stunning view. I stopped a lot – to both look and to catch my breath. A couple places I wasn’t actually able to stop at because of the vertigo. The road is up pretty high from the shore and it’s awfully close to straight down. There wasn’t much traffic, so I could pretty much go at my own pace. Just before San Simeon, there were elephant seals!
Spent the afternoon at Hearst Castle. Amazing place. A lot of the inside pictures didn’t come out well because of no flash. I did two of the tours and would definitely go back to do more of them.
