My Kastle for a Klennex

Before California statehood and the incorporation of San Francisco, the U.S. Pacific coast was made up of feudal kingdoms and feuding warlords. Evidence of this includes the giant moat between the Kingdom of Oakland and the Duchy of Potrero Hill that we now call the San Francisco Bay.

Less well known are the remaining castles of the warlords, some of which have stayed in the same families for centuries such as the Duke of Ulloa who maintains Hearse Castle which Bryce Digdug and I recently discovered when we make our journey to pay homage to the giant sundial of San Francisco.

Now another castle -- from the Fiefdom of Albion -- is for sale, all six stories. Not to be missed are its "hand-hewn caverns". I've no idea if Hearse Castle has hand-hewn caverns, but it's hard not to believe that a castle surrounded by hearses doesn't have something buried beneath.

At only $2.95 million, Albion Castle is surely the best dollar-value fiefdom currently on the market.

That is quite the kingly pose in the lowest photo.
