Hearst Castle

Posted by Picasa

Very windy this morning. A lovely day trip for a tourist attraction...and interesting what they tell you and what they don't -- about Hearst. There are four separate tours, each costs $20 a piece. You get driven from the visitor's center five miles up the hill to the castle. On the basic tour we took -- We walked the grounds, through a guest house, and into the dining room and other downstairs rooms in the main house, also the two swimming pools -- one indoor and one out. And a 45-minute film about Hearst with clips of old movies of some of the celebs who came to visit -- from Chaplin to Churchill.

Any readers who have been to the castle? If so, what's your take?
