Candles at Mission San Antonio and Other Delights

Today was an absolutely beautiful day on The Central Coast of California. Anita, Tressa, Christine and I all headed up the Salinas Valley. We crossed the mountains to the Coast at King City. We went up to Fort Hunter Liggett where the Hearst Ranch House and Mission San Anonio are located. We explored these places and then ascended the Santa Lucia on Nacimiento Road which winds and switchbacks over the mountains to the Big Sur Coast.

That was an adventure as we climbed to about 4500 feet, most of which seemed to have no guard rails on the cliffs that dropped vertically to the canyon floors below. Beautiful and electrifying. A fabulous trip.

Once on the coast we drove south past The Hearst Castle at San Simeon to Cambria. There Anita got her birthday wish and went through each and every store. I shot a few pix in the toursty little town.

We then headed back up to Paso Robles and up the 101 to home.

A fine time was had by all.
