San Diego, CA…or as I call it, Katholville

We pushed from LBC to San Diego not interested in the chaos LA can bring. If we didn’t have 2 labs, and a 31′ Airstream to tow, we probably would have checked out some LA stuff.

We were welcomed in Sandy Eggo by Jill and I immediately thought she was playing a joke on us about where to park the Airstream. When I realized she wasn’t, we gave it a try, but the super steep grade, and 0 turning radius made it impossible. She then showed me the next option, which was worse…. but we got it in!!!!!!!! And we almost didn’t leave. 🙂

Such an awesome time in Sandy Eggo (El Cajon specifically), and Uncle John and Jill were wonderful hosts! We got to see pretty much all the cousins, uncles, aunts, friends, and peacocks. Lots of peacocks!

The Hearst Castle!

Just a modest 174 rooms, but again, unbelievable views, and tons of museum quality art and decor (the dining table is Walnut and is 500 years old!)

William Hearst is known for being the first “media mogul“ but he was actually the son of the 10th richest man in the country.  Williams mother said before her passing “don’t give the land to William… he will do something excessive with it”……. well………………..
