Next stop,
Hearst Castle...

Did people really
"live" like this?

The Outdoor Pool...

And the indoor one,
with 24K gold tiling...

The next day it was on to Big Sur, where we met up with my longtime online friend Sharon for lunch at Nepenthe after a visit to the river... absolutely my favorite coastline views!

The coastline


Yes, the chair is IN the river -- a peaceful place to sit and meditate...

Nepenthe's Phoenix

With best buddy, Sharon

A message for who?

Breakfast at
Rocky Point

Gary at Rocky Point

Carmel, on the way
to Point Lobos

Point Lobos, looking
at Carmel

Gary went on to Limekiln

And the topper to the trip, seeing daughter, Bonny
and meeting new granddaughter MJ —
isn't she a doll?!
