Another beautiful day on the Central Coast, it is exceptional due to the wet winter. Headed to Hearst Castle today it was nearly empty due to a power outage but because we had pre purchased tickets on-line they took us up to the Castle to find we were the only two on our tour so we had an hour and a half long private tour it was awesome he showed us stuff you normally don't get to see, it was just great.


When we were on the grounds we saw a bald eagle, very rare sighting in this area but they reestablished the population years ago.


Also made it down to see the elephant seals there were hundreds on the beach.

Hello all, we are enjoying our Coastal Adventure...:cool:


When we got to Hearst Castle the parking lot was unusually empty and when we entered the Visitors Center everything was closed. The usually bustling gift shops, food court, coffee stands dark maybe a dozen or so people walking around, instead of the hundreds.


We went to the ticket center which was open and asked what was going on and they said the power was out, but if you had prepurchase tickets they were taking people up to the Castle since it was on its own power.


The movie theater was also closed where the show a film about the Hearst family and building of the property.


When we got on our bus there were only a dozen people which is a very small group, only to find out when we reached the Castle that the group was 3 different tours and our tour Designing the Dream (about the building of the property) was only Kat and I.


So we got a private tour in which our guide decided to get into a lot of detail that you normally don't see with a larger group so it was very unique and enlightening.


Friday we went golfing and while I have been playing good I got my butt handed to me by the course, but the awesome views made it worth it.


We headed to Cambria for the day yesterday to hit the neat little shops and hang out at the beach. Last night we ate dinner at Dorn's Breakers and had a wonderful dinner.


Today we are headed to SLO (San Luis Obispo) for the day.

Thank you Tinkamok I appreciate it...:)



So I have the landscapers here today tightening the backyard up for the wedding, they trimmed the trees, pulled all the old rock out of the flower beds flattened everything out and are putting new Fog Cobble in and playground bark under the trees where the hammock is, they are adding "batter" boards (sometimes called bender boards) to hold the rocks and cleaning up all the river rock that goes around the perimeter.


I used to refresh the rocks and bark about every 3 years but after Terri got sick I stopped doing it and it was last done in 2011...:wow:


They got an early start...:drums:









They repurposed the old rock around the house and in the front yard flower beds





These trees were trimmed and I am going to add a privacy blind for the neighbors...:)






Hopefully it doesn't effect Plookhedge on the summer solstice the sun rises between the trees, people from all over come to see it here is last years crowd...:lol:








I will get some good pictures when they are done, I also opened my pool area it looks smashing...:grin:

Poly I understand most people have no issue with Cardioversion, the death rate is 1.4% which is low so when they stop your heart and it doesn't start you are dead...I fully expect to be here the next day but for an example the IT guy at work once told me to turn my computer off and turn it back on and I turned off my computer and it never came back on...:shocked:
