Lara. Making herself at home in her bed. Of course, she only hung out there when she was enjoying the Sponge Bob Squarepants marathon she found herself. She slept with Mommy & Daddy the two nights we were there.
Oooops. Here goes an out of order pic. On our drive up to Cambria, we stopped in Solvang. We love this little Dutch town. We have been a few times before and eat at the same restaurant each time. The restaurant has a windmill, which would be expected of a Dutch town. Here she goes, stretching out her legs. We weren’t even half way there!
Don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers. 🙂
The Hearst Castle! Yay! The tour included a look at an indoor pool. If you look up the word opulence in the dictionary, there will be a picture of the Hearst Castle as an example. Yup.
Stephen did a great job of helping corral Curly Bear. She was running around during most of the 1.5 hour tour.
The main house.
This jazzy structure decorates one of the outer pools.
This is outside of our cabin. The one across the street is pretty much how ours looked. Lara wanted to take a picture of the pretty flowers.
Our last night there, we ate at Robin’s, a DELICIOUS restaurant in downtown Cambria. Delicious. Really, really good. Here goes my Yelp review.
Woah. Back to the Castle. Outside of the Hearst Castle Visitor’s Center.
One of her favorite things! She loves making wishes in fountains. She will ask me for a quarter and I have to convince her that a penny will do. She twirls her hand counter clockwise about 5 times before she throws the coin in. LOL.
You won’t believe it. I drove us back ALL BY MYSELF. That’s a pretty big deal for someone who does not enjoy driving. After this trip, however, I enjoy it a lot more. Yay!
How picturesque is this?
This is right after we checked out, in front of their lobby. The restaurant rocks, too. And, we got free breakfast both mornings. And, free Internet access. What a commercial for this place!
