A real castle in the air - Daphne takes lots of photos!
Daphne is taking lots of pictures so she can show the mini-peeps at home.
Wikipedia tells us:
"Hearst Castle is a mansion on the Central Coast of California, a National Historic Landmark in California, United States. It was designed by architect Julia Morgan for William Randolph Hearst—a newspaper magnate from 1919 until 1947. In 1957, the Hearst Corporation donated the property to the state of California. Since that time it has been maintained as state historic park where the estate and its considerable collection of art and antiques are open for public tours. Despite its location far from any urban center, the site attracts roughly one million visitors per year.
"Hearst formally named the estate "La Cuesta Encantada" ("The Enchanted Hill"), but usually called it "the ranch". The castle and grounds are also sometimes referred to as "San Simeon" without distinguishing between the Hearst property and the Unincorporated area of the same name."
Daphne loves the pool:
She takes some pictures anyway. The big doll peeps are very beautiful.
This one is relaxing by the pool.
And these three seem to have a secret.
Daphne wishes that Colette were here so she could ask her about it.
Daphne can't wait to show them her pictures.
"Wow!' exclaims Daphne. "This is even bigger than Colette's hot tub."
We hope you enjoyed the tour. I wonder what will happen next.
