2 Things Photo Challenge - Window/Shop

For this weeks' challenge over at 2things it's
Window/Shop. I had to dredge the archives.

From the living rooms of Hearst Castle located in
San Simeon, CA. So many notables in the day of
William Randolph Hearst including Mr. Hearst himself
have peered from these windows, gazing into the glorious
golden hills of San Simeon.

and from the libraries into the courtyards reminiscent
of the ancient Greeks and Romans adorned with beautiful
sculptures and lush landscapes.

A table with a window view at Bayside Betty's in
Provincetown. Great hospitality and wonderful seafood.

I couldn't resist this photo. "John's Only"
Food and Chachkes (aka knickknacks, souvenirs, stuff)
and when you can't find Burger King there is always
Burger Queen.

No cheap burgers here. I took this pic early morning
we rode our bikes here and stopped for lunch the
place was packed.

The craziest head shop I've ever seen. Three floors and all
the paraphenalia you can dream of, black light posters from
the '60s, clothing, jewelry, incense, pipes you know what
I'm talking about.

Thought for today:
"Wherever you decide to go, go with all your heart"

My best to all! My other blogspot "tHe ArTfuL Eye"

Delightful entries - I like the room/hills contrast in the 1st photo & that's one funky shop in the last photo. I meant to stop by before and tell you that I loved the giant clover leaves from last week.

Such great photos! I love the window photo looking out at the bayside- something about windows that are magical! The craziest head shop is a gorgeous building!

I give this post five bongs, I mean five stars. You know what I mean.

Was Burger Queen in Provincetown?

I was in Hearst Castle once with my other ex and the kids. My kids behaved beautifully, better than some of the adults on the tour. What a grand old place. I wouldn't want to live there, though. I would get lonely. You'd have to share it with about one hundred other people.

Great head shop! You don't see many like that. Not even around here.

What a shop indeed. Do you have more pictures of the shop from the inside?
