It's a good thing "The Critic" has other plans.
I have that one on VHS that I play on my TV during "Open Trailer" at every rally we attend.
Robert has gotten tired of seeing it, but he's not coming this time.

I have Wallace and Gromit's "The Curse Of The Were Rabbit" on DVD that I've haven't seen yet and would be willing to bring for Movie Night.

Our family really enjoys Mission San Antonio, in large part because of its setting. While y'all head out to the vineyards, we can take the kids (and anyone else interested) to the mission.

Jen,

Mission San Antonio is an interesting place to visit. Also, William Randolph Hearst of Hearst Castle fame, built a Hacienda in the area that can be visited.

YES! The Hacienda is FABULOUS! I stayed there a few years back. What a great spot if you can do without cable and a phone or even ensuite living. HEY! Wait a minute! I think we ALL meet (most of) those qualifications!

Actually William Randolph Hearst’s “Hacienda” was for his mistress and on the inland side of the mountains, NOT on the coast by the sea lions.

I couldn't view your link; I got a 404 error.

I could view photos at Hearst Hacienda Photos Link

Not quite right -- it is located on the ocean side of the range (not inland side).

However you are quite right that it is quite far inland and higher elevation to avoid the fog.

Here's a "terrain view" from Google Maps -- it is clear that San Simeon is on the ocean side of the ridge.

Attachment 19608

I think the confusion here is between the famous Hearst Castle, located in San Simeon on the coast, and the lesser known Hacienda he built on his ranch over the mountains. The land now belongs to the US Gov't and is on Fort Hunter Liggett. It is also in the proximity of Mission San Antonio de Padua. It is reachable by road either south from King City or north on Jolon Rd. off Highway 101.

Here is a link showing the distance between the two locations, Hearst Castle & Hearst Hacienda in the The Valley of the Oaks (near San Antonio Mission)

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source...mp;t=p&z=11

The Valley of the Oaks is west of US Highway 101 between San Francisco and Los Angeles, near King City. Exit 101 at Jolon Road (G-14). In the winter, rain sometimes closes the Nacimiento-Ferguson Road and Route 1. Call CalTrans at 800-427-7623 or check their web site for current road conditions. The Hacienda and mission are inside Fort Hunter-Liggett, and there is a brief security check at the gate. Be prepared to show identification, automobile registration and insurance.

Yes, we have room for you. When will you be arriving and how many nights will you be staying?
