Central California Coast in Pictures
Our wonderland along the central California coast was bounded by Monterey Beach, CA to the north and Pismo Beach, CA to the south.
Succulents along the street on the way to the huge rock jutting as if out of nowhere along Morro Bay:
Nestled in the hills at San Simeon, Randolph Hearst’s Castle, a world-class historic house museum.
The Dining Room is elegant with casual touches: a bottle of ketchup and a jar of mustard for guests amid all the silver, crystal, and china. Paper napkins in vases too. Shabby chic? I don’t think so. Practical luxury!
Elephant seals, reclaimed from near-extinction, now thrive along the central California coast.
Most hotels had fireplaces and we used ours constantly at night. Sweaters and jackets were part of our daily outfit. We never turned on the TV.
As diarist Samuel Pepys would say, “And so to bed.”
