Piedras Blancas Lighthouse to San Simeon

This was Larry’s last day walking with me before he returns home tomorrow. We’ll be leaving Morro Bay before sunrise to get him to San Luis Obispo for the Amtrak train to Union Station, then I’ll ‘book it’ up to Cambria to catch the bus to my start point in San Simeon.

Spotlights This Week:
Always: Hope Chapel Missions
Charity Spotlight: Desire Street Ministries
Church Spotlight: Lompoc Foursquare Church – Lompoc, CA

Today’s walk took us past the primary elephant seal viewing area, so we were entertained by their antics for awhile before moving on through the pasture lands of the Hearst Ranch, with the Castle within view on the Enchanted Hill above.

Then ‘what to my wondering eyes should appear’?
But a field full of zebras, some far and some near!


Yes, alongside the Black Angus cattle grazed this herd of zebras.  In its heyday, Hearst Castle had the largest private zoo in the world.  The zebras are pretty much the only remaining specimens, and they’re often easily seen from Highway 1.

Back on my own tomorrow… back to the bus, and back to the beach towns!

I’ll leave you with tonight’s sunset – God painted a pretty one, didn’t he?



For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:6

  1. Hey Laura! Did you see any Sea Elephants at or near Piedras Blancas? There are several hundred, if not a couple thousand along there, right along the highway in several parts. Cheryl and I got up there this past year and saw them. It’s another of those “Interesting animal sights” along that stretch of highway.
