Hearst Castle - A Photographic Tour Part 1
One needs to take a shuttle bus to get to Hearst Castle. It is after all still 5 miles from the Visitor Center. The drive offers recorded descriptions of the spots we are passing by. The drive is uphill as the castle is 1600 feet on the Santa Lucia Range and has a spectacular view of the ocean.
A peek at the castle at this turn of the bus.
There's our bus.
The first spot we were taken when we were dropped off at the Castle was the Neptune Pool, the outdoor pool, measures 104 x 58 feet and is highlighted by the facade of an ancient Roman temple that was purchased and imported to California.
And up these stairs we go to the next part of the tour. Hope you enjoyed the tour so far. My information retention is pretty lousy, but whatever was said in the tour, I'm sure Wikipedia has it.
This is my entry for this week's MY WORLD #119.
