I drove by it, accidently, and realized later, that I did that. There was no big sign and I couldn't read the little street signs, I was going west, towards the Sun. About a mile later, I realized, I past it, there were big signs and no where did it say Hearst Castle.
So, I said fuck it, I'm gonna let the road take me wherever it goes. As I was driving, I've never been this far up the coast, I just fell in love with the landscape, it reminded me of Scotland but with less shrubery, less green. It was so beautiful, I was in heaven.
I ended up in Big Sur.
