Watery Wednesday #110: Hearst Castle Outdoor Pool

14 Jun

The Neptune Pool is the name of the outdoor swimming pool at Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California. It is fed by mountain water and is surrounded by ancient Roman style columns and statues. Designed by architect Julia Morgan, the Neptune Pool was started in 1924 and was finally completed after several redesigns and re-buildings in 1936. [wiki]

    The true essence of opulence. I cannot imagine having a pool like that at your home…oops…I meant castle. I can think of lots of ways to spend all of that money, and they do not include a swimming pool. Your shots are great and give the view a real feel for what it might be like standing there in person. genie
