In the spring of 2004, my husband Christopher and I were married. We took a road trip up the coast and had the pleasure of touring Hearst Castle. What a magnificent place. The remainder of our honeymoon in the sleepy beach town of Morro Bay & Carmel. This is not a glitz and glam type of resort. It is humble, charming, eclectic and quiet. We stayed at the Masterpiece Motel and spent the day treasure hunting in town. For our son’s 10th birthday, we decided to revisit the place where we fell more deeply in love.
