I only took 5 iPhone pictures on our trip to Cambria a couple weeks ago. I didn't even take my camera with me to Hearst Castle!!! It was glorious. I felt so free. It felt really relaxing to just walk around and soak everything in, not worrying about pulling my camera out to capture all the beauty around me. It almost felt frivolous... and a bit luxurious. I'm seriously not exaggerating.

Then, we saw a bunch of zebras on PCH on the way back to the hotel... I regretted not having my camera a little bit then...


The zebras were absolutely breathtaking. We even saw a momma zebra nursing her baby!

Levi took some photos on his iPhone at Hearst Castle. I really like this one. Looking at it makes me remember how peaceful I felt standing on that little golden balcony tucked away in a corner of the garden.


William Randolph Hearst really got it right when he named his home La Cuesta Encantada, the enchanted hill. It's truly magical up there.

Our latest trip to Cambria was exactly what we needed. I only wish we could have stayed longer.


  1. Hearst Castle is ah-maaaaaaazing. I was there about 10 years ago, and I still think about it pretty frequently. Love it.

  2. That picture of you is just GORGEOUS!!! So pretty, peaceful and lovely with the colors and bright blue sky!

  3. I can't wait to visit hearst Castle! I have their website bookmarked on my computer.

    ... I don't know if I'll be able to leave my camera behind though, but I understand what you're saying about it feeling more relaxing. Kim, xo

  4. ok i may sound incredibly ditsy when I say this but...zebras in Cambria?!? Seriously? I was just in San Luis Obispo last weekend and did not see any zebras! And I've wanted to go to Cambria/Hearst Castle for soo long now..it's been over 10 years since i've been!
