Hike by the Sea

You can see Hearst Castle on the tip of the mountain if you click to enlarge! Amazing Eucaliptus groves!!

Isn't this just beautiful...a beach just for you!





The San Semion Pier is in the back!!



Well, last weekend my hubby and I went on a gorgeous hike by the sea in San Simeon ( Hearst Castle beach) We went on this hike with a group of our good friends that we usually play poker and take turns hosting dinner at each others house ...We are a crazy bunch! anyways...we decided to hike this weekend, and we could not have had a better day either...like a spring day..not too hot..clear and sunny ..and the views from this trial were just spectacular...there are lot of Eucalyptis trees towering all along the trial so the air has this amazing scent combined with the sea ! We all keep wondering if we could camp out on the ridge some night there...I would if I had my big dog Toby with me for protection ...( I worry more about the people than animals..you just don't know..but thats just me..) I generally am not a camper..because I like nice clean bathrooms and showers,,,,sleeping on the ground hurts my back..then my phobia of strange people lurking in the dark..hummmmmm .... ...but this place I certainly would make an exception! Enjoy the pictures! click to enlarge and see the details of the scenery!!!! Have a great day!

There is nothing prettier than the coast of California in the spring and fall.

I have the same phobia!! If I camp anymore it must be in a place where I can lock the doors. Geeze

Beautiful photo of the red maple tree in your opening. I love the Autumn season the best. I guess that both coasts have their magical foliage.
