Second stop on our road trip was Hearst Castle. I have never been but I've been curious about the castle and I'm so glad we got to check it out. Hearst Castle is in the city of San Simeon, about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Basically it's a HUGE castle that super rich newspaper guy, William Hearst built with famous architect Julia Morgan. The architecture, the antiques, the environment, view, everything was amazingly beautiful. I especially enjoyed the Neptune pool and the Roman pool with real gold inlay! I wish I could just jump in.
