There are zebras at Hearst Castle!

..I don't have any pictures of them..but we saw them from the road! So weird to see them in that environment.

It actually rained while we were driving down to Cambria! People were flipping out (and happy because CA needs rain). We didn't make a lot of stops and decided to drive back up to Big Sur the next day to see Bixby Bridge and the Elephant Seals. We did decide to visit Hearst Castle.

Even in the rain, the castle was still pretty awesome. The history and architecture is lavish and amazing. We toured the downstairs and then explored the outside of the property. I saw so many hummingbirds! I've never seen so many up close. 

Luckily for us when we finished up at the castle, the sun made it's way through and we were able to have a nice walk on Moonstone beach which was right near our airbnb. We stayed in this adorable place owned and operated by the cutest old couple. They even made us a special breakfast in the morning and gave us a moonstone!
