Our 2nd “Tour de Hearst Castle” cruise is almost here!!!   So, time to check the oil level on the old car and use a little elbow grease to get it out on the road.  Remember, this is a club driving event so the rules still apply, Name Tags and you’ve gotta have some Blue Oval lineage or else you’ll be absolutely relegated to the back of the pack!

Here’s what we have planned so far:

FRIDAY 10/10/14

  • We will meet at our usual Macy’s parking lot spot (Main St. Mall)  @ 9 AM and leave at 9:30 AM  sharp
  • We will cruise up the freeway to Neptune’s Net in Malibu for lunch at 11:30 AM
  • Cruise up Highway 1 To Morro Bay and then to Cambria. Check in to the “Blue Bird Inn” in Cambria at about 3:30 PM
  • Dinner on your own at the Black Cat Bistro next door to the Blue Bird Inn or in Cambria or Moonstone

SATURDAY 10/11/14

  • Mini Wine tasting tour for those interested. Leave at 10:00 AM from Blue Bird
  • Lunch on your own —approximately Noon or so
  • Stroll through Cambria and meet for Dinner at the “Sows Ear” at 5 PM!
  • Spectacular “Hearst Castle Evening Tour” at 7:50 PM

 SUNDAY 10/12/14

  • Breakfast on your own
  • Depart for home at your leisure as the tour is officially over


  • For those of you who want to stay an extra day because Monday is ‘Christopher Columbus” Holiday, there will be an informal drive north on Highway 1 on Sunday to Big Sur, stopping at several scenic points and having lunch at the “Phoenix” restaurant in Big Sur and then returning to Cambria.  Dinner on you own, return home Monday anytime!
