Trip to Hearst Castle

Mike and I took a day trip to Hearst Castle on August 16th, which is the 3rd most visited attraction in California topped by Yosemite and Disneyland. We both had the weekend off, which rarely happens, so we said what the heck...let's go! It took us about 2 1/2 hours to get there, but it wasn't bad because we drove through some really pretty areas with vineyards lining the hilltops and waves crashing the shore. I'm glad I bought our tour tickets online because they were sold out when we got there. The castle was beautiful! Makes me wonder how it's really possible for one person to be so rich. I mean this guy had major cash. It's as close to a castle as you're going to get in America, for sure. We made sure to see the movie and go through the souviner shop...a must for tourists. Mike and I are into collecting magnets from the places we go, so we had to grab one course. After a thorough tourist experience, we headed down to the San Simeon Beach. It was getting late and a little chilly, so we just put our feet in, took a walk, and enjoyed the incredible scenery. We didn't get home til about midnight that night, but it was well worth it. Some times I feel as if Mike and I just work our lives a way and don't take time for the people and experiences that really matter in life. This trip was a short, yet significant start to enjoying life, places, and the people that come with it.
