Before work starts, I felt like exploring the coastline. Besides, I sort of missed the car and the open road. I drove south on US 1 planning on just going to Big Sur, but had enough fun on the curves that I kept going toward Hearst Castle. By the time I got there, Xanadu was closed, but the drive was worth the $20 in gas it cost me. The color and definition of the light was incredible, and made for some pretty decent photographs.
