We left LA and headed for San Marcos to visit some friends and then up the coast along Hwy101 & Hwy1 all the way to Monterrey and then back South East to Palm Springs.
Along the way we stopped overnight at an RV park in Malibu: http://www.maliburv.com/
We then headed up to San Simeon to see the Hearst Castle. It is something not to be missed. Awesome grounds and buildings. The place is furnished with museum pieces as you will see in the pictures that follow.
