So I was actually only in San Simeon for about 5 hours, but the rest of the day was driving to and from…
I left rather early to meet Annalise is San Simeon for the afternoon to visit Hearst Castle. I figured I’d want to stop for pictures along the way, especially since I was driving along Highway 1. And I did. Though not as often as I would have done had it not been entirely foggy along the coast.
I did get a couple interesting shots regardless.
After a brief (and COLD!) stop at the elephant seal rookery a few minutes from the turn off to the Castle (where I took the following), I arrived at the Hearst Castle Visitor Center.
After Annie arrived, we went inside and bought our tickets to the basic introductory tour. It was rather amazing. Seriously.
