Hearst Castle

Truly amazing from the air. We were able to view the layout of the grounds and see the various guest houses in a way I was never able to appreciate from previous visits on the ground. The Neptune pool alone was fantastic. We did a few orbits and then continued on our way. In the distance were both the private airstrip and dock of the castle.

Airship tidbit: Hearst was a sponsor of the 1929 Graf Zeppelin
'weltfahrt' around the world tour.
