Saturday at Hearst Castle and Slow Bowl

I had Federico and Casey up and out the door by 8:45 on Saturday morning. We had breakfast at Cafe Quackenbush before heading up the coast to San Simeon and a visit to Hearst Castle. We took Tour 1 (the main house and pools), and both boys were interested in the history of building Mr Hearst's hillside playground for his varied groups of friends.

When we arrived back at the Skyview, there was a glorious sunset, but by then the "pre-pizza pool games" had begun.

After pizza and gelato, the pool table was again uncovered for the rest of the evening. The boys had several "coaches", and Federico turned out to be quite the pool hustler!

Meanwhile, late in the evening, out came Kelly's fabulous lemon curd and some vanilla butter cookies for dipping. Several of us decided we needed a sweet treat with our wine!

It was a wonderful day and a fun evening for all!

I remember the life long impression those pools made for me upon my first visit to Hearst's castle as a teen. Love your pictures!
