    Mom loved Hearst Castle when we went back in 2010. Different tour that time.

It is SO lavish, and that money could have been spent so much more wisely. It almost ruins it for me.

    But yes, I'll try to remember to take pics. I'll even try to make mom bring her real camera, so we can get some good ones (I take crap photos).

    I wouldn't know where to post the TR...maybe on my blog...thanks, BTW, for encouraging me in that direction. I find it interesting the people who want to see it, and those who don't. I'm not offended by people who don't want to see it - god knows it isn't that interesting, it's mostly...some people I was sure would be interested aren't, while others whom I didn't think would care...do.

    Morning Humphrey! Yeah, this place wasn't my first choice, but at the time I made the reservations it was all I could afford. I'm elitist about hotels, so I was a little disappointed that I couldn't do better, but it may surprise me. The rooms are just a little...dark...for a beach resort. Just my opinion. Apparently there is a lot of marble in the lobby though.

    Pismo Beach...I've never been, so....but its near SLO and we're taking the evening tour at Hearst Castle. We're staying at a Resort up there - sounds fancy, but judging from the pictures, I'd say if nothing else the decor is a little dated. So anyway, mom has a spa package booked and the daily resort fee includes fun stuff like beach cruisers and beach towels and whatnot. It should be lovely.

    ohh i love SLO! and hearst castle i been there, nice!!

    and my parents are in santa Barbara right now at the orchid show.. they took the motorhome so they could bring home a zillion orchids.. but it's fine my mom has green house and she needs to fill it!

    and i love retro and old buildings! i love that indoor pool at the hearst castle, i would give anything to swim in that thing! my cousin is a nanny and she was a nanny for the i think it's the grandkis that have kids now and she was the nanny for them, yeah pretty cool. she said they are a nice family, obviously she got paid bank!

    The evening tour. I really need to get my booty to the gym or my knees will give out on all those stairs. We took the general overview tour last time, but I think it will be really cool to see Hearst Castle all lit up at night...

    You can post one here in MC in the Other Theme Parks and Destinations that is where I put my Pirate Dinner show Trip Report.

    And you are SO very welcome! I'm glad to have helped you out! I've skimmed through that site alot and there are just thousands upon thousands of people who put their little life in there and its an interesting read sometimes. Who knows, your experiences may be helping someone else out going through the same thing or vice versa!

    I'm glad you like it! I know mine is VERY theraputic....and keeps me out of trouble here :P

    Didn't know there was an evening tour but that is a great choice. So, yes, TR please.

    Have fun at the gym. I just got back from working out and may need a nap this afternoon.
