Caffe Americano and beignets with the berkeleyites.. A comtemplative brisk morning in pj’s and a hoodie. I was waxing a moment regretful over my recent visit to hearst castle while driving up the PCH. I wish i’d bought the souvenir carabiner/keychain. Totally generic except for the words “Hearst Castle” imprinted in tiny and unremarkable letters. It was $6. I was only willing to go $3 for such a distinctive memory of one of America’s most impressive landmarks. Please note that they *did* have similarly-compelling shot glasses –. But I thought the carabiner said *even less* about WR’s San Simeon marvel.
