I'm staying at Asilomar, the Julia Morgan-designed retreat center in Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula. (She of Hearst Castle fame.) It's fabulous. www.visitasilomar.com/accommodations.aspx   I would love to organize a b.org retreat here.  I think everyone would have an excellent time, but it wouldn't go over to start with. Too bad.  It's owned by the State Park. If this place was private, the rooms would be 3 or 4 times the cost. 

I'm enjoying all my various lodgings.  Sat. night was tent camping.  Sunday was in a hostel, in a six-plex all girl bunkroom, but with only three of us.  Tonight the luxury lodging.  Next three nights, tent camping.  Then I'm going back to the lighthouse hostel.  www.norcalhostels.org/pigeon/  The location is great. The best part, though, is the hot tub right on the west edge of the cliff. It really is All That.

I'm doing a great job maximizing my stay at Asilomar, and am blowing tomorrow morning by staying up too late. Off I go!

The Historic rooms seem much more interesting at Asilomar but I'd be swayed by the rooms with a fireplace. I wish I were a better person, but fireplaces are my weakness.

Glad you are having fun.
