Day 21 – I Believe I Booked An Ocean View?
Before heading South we made a quick photo stop outside Pixar because, well, we were in the neighborhood! My work at Disney meant I was constantly surrounded by all things Pixar, but being stood there today made me realize I’m still a big nerd at heart and will always be star-struck! We made our time there short as Joe was having quite the bladder issue; you’ve never seen such a ridiculous search for a restroom. Two gas stations, a Starbucks and a Jack in the box later, Joe was refreshed and we were on our way!
Back when I was in my late teens I heard a bizarre story about a woman who kept building on her mansion non-stop for 38 years due to her belief it would appease the spirits of all the people killed by her husbands family creation - the Winchester rifle. I was so fascinated by this building, that had stairs built into the ceiling, windows in the floors and doors opening to blank walls, that I gave this visit top priority.
Unfortunately the reality was it was just a ridiculously large, decrepit house that charges $28 a tour and doesn’t even let you take photos inside. Big letdown.
