Continuing our tour of the Hearst Castle. After the Grand Rooms Tour and the Upstairs Suites Tour you are free to walk the grounds, visit the Neptune and Roman pools on your own. The Neptune Pool was drained due to the drought which gave them an opportunity to patch the leaks. Here is the drained pool from a distance. We don't have the best of luck with water attractions from this being drained to the Riverwalk in San Antonio being drained for cleaning while we were there.
Here it is up close.
Here is Neptune overlooking his drained pool.
The Roman Pool is an indoor pool.
Here is the diving board.
The flowers on the grounds and the views walking around are impressive.
This concludes our tour of an incredible Castle. Tomorrow we head to Visalia California for a week to see King Canyon and Sequoia National Parks.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
