Well, we crashed in San Simeon. Smoked the hookah; drank some beers.

We saw Hearst Castle the next day. I'd actually never been here. It was surprisingly cool! Expensive, though! $25 to see the main rooms, but $125 to see all of them. Jeez. But it just has great scenery in general, and there're even "wild" zebra out there. Cray, huh?
Hearst Castle: 8.5

Then we checked out the elephant seal birthing and mating point. There's this stretch of beach 5mi north of Hearst Castle where you could find all of the elephant seals during winter. Dec: birthing. Jan: nursing/weening. Feb: mating. There were nearly 1000 of these suckers. The babies are so funny and make the weirdest sounds.
Elephant Seals: 10

We had just enough time to pass through Pismo Beach and have dinner on Santa Barbara's wharf. Drove through Del Playa and everything. Kinda weird, but pretty.
SB Wharf: 8.5
