A Hermosa Beach woman involved in an acrimonious custody dispute apparently drowned her 8-year-old daughter before taking her own life in the surf near San Simeon, according to preliminary autopsy results. Investigators believe that Marcia Harrigan, 43, left Hermosa Beach on Jan. 9 after receiving word that she would have to turn her daughter, Gillian Goldman, over to the girl's father, Glenn Goldman, the following day. During a phone call to a lawyer friend earlier in the day, Harrigan expressed reluctance to follow the court's order.

Two real-estate deals in the last three years -- one covering more than 82,000 acres and one covering just 20 -- promise big changes and new options for visitors to San Simeon. THE RANCH DEAL Even without Hearst Castle, the coastline north of Cambria and south of Big Sur is a staggering sight. Now that the state has acquired 13 miles of it from the Hearst Corp., it will soon be more accessible than ever.

The California Department of Transportation plans to use $23 million to help keep portions of Hearst Ranch along California 1 undeveloped. The plan also would allow Caltrans to move erosion-vulnerable portions of the highway inland up to 500 feet, and could ensure public access to the entire 18-mile coastline strip of the ranch west of the road.

Hearst Corp. has agreed to postpone any development of its historic ranch in San Simeon for six months to allow two national conservation groups to come up with a plan to preserve the property forever. Hearst picked the Nature Conservancy and the Conservation Fund as its "conservation partners." These groups will try to raise public and private money for a deal that would set aside most, if not all, of the picturesque property from development. "It's a great opportunity," said Stephen T.

Hundreds of elephant seals have mysteriously come ashore weeks earlier than usual five miles north of Hearst Castle. Nearly 400 seals, four times the expected number, were counted Thursday. Scientists say they do not know if weather or food supplies led to the early arrival. "I have no idea," said Susan McDonald, executive director of Friends of the Elephant Seal.

What's there to see in San Simeon besides the Hearst Castle? It's a common question asked by thousands of travelers on their way to the castle. The answer is found at San Simeon State Park, which boasts a diversity of scenery from dramatic shoreline to Monterey pine forest. Beckoning hikers is a new trail, complete with interpretive displays, a boardwalk that crosses a wetland, and numerous benches that offer a place to rest and observe the tranquil surroundings.

What's there to see in San Simeon besides Hearst castle? It's a common question, one asked by thousands of travelers on their way to the castle. The answer, for beach hikers anyway, is found at San Simeon Bay, one of the Central Coast's most dramatic stretches of shoreline. A walk along San Simeon Bay is a nice diversion before or after a tour of "La Cuesta Encantada," "the Enchanted Hill"--the name of the famous castle built by newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst.

Among the blessings of California are its 1 million acres of state parks, established to preserve places for recreation and to keep intact important historical sites and wilderness areas, ranging from lush redwood forests to bone-dry deserts. Each of the 300 park "units" in the California system has its own story to tell, but only a handful feature women as leading characters.
