Even more elephant seals

Yay, I fixed my laptop with a screw driver (that qualifies for the next post ;)) and now I can finally upload more pictures from our micro-roadtrip to Hearst Castle and the elephant seals:

Hearst Castle was built between 1919 and 1947 by the architect Julia Morgan with and for William Randolph Hearst who had inherited a fortune made from gold-mining and who became a newspaper magnate. William Hearst collected lots of (large) art pieces in the Castle, shipped in animals from all over the world for his private zoo and also broad parts of a Roman temple to decorate one of his three swimming pools. It's a very impressive sight and it's worth seeing. Today it's only used for educational and touristic purposes (back in the day, it was some business/leisure convention center).
