Just a photo today, as we head south a little bit, to Hearst Castle near Cambria. This is one of the opulent indoor pools.

  1. This pool is beautiful…what an amazing architectural site; in atlantic city they are making casinos with pools in them but I highly doubt they look like this 😉

  2. Another beautiful structure by the great Julia Morgan. When I was young, I used to fantasize about swimming in that pool or the circular one outside. Almost too beautiful to be real.
