Pulled out of hotel at 9:15 with a full day ahead of us. Evan put the wipers on straight up but quickly adjusted into left-hand drive mode. We drove on the 101 until we got to San Luis Obispo where we switched to Highway 1 and headed to our first stop of the day, Hearst Castle. On the way we passed the California Men's Colony. Evan remarked that he would like to live there. I remarked that it's a prison. We got petrol at Cambria for $4.76 a gallon (seemed dear). Darcy ...

... so we could walk a route suggested by friend Charlotte Fischer, BUT absolutely NO parking spaces there OR in the next three parking lots we encountered. Finally found THE LAST space in Weston Beach Loop. We then hiked back toward the Cyprus Grove area. Fairly easy hike (especially when compared to what Bonna put me through in Pinnical area a couple of days ago). Great seascape, lots of sea lions, and fast moving clouds and fog. Looked like a ...
