California Roadtrip 2015: Postcards from Solvang

On a tour of mission churches in California, we stopped to eat and shop at a tiny village called Solvang (Danish for 'sunny field').  It is a beautiful little city nestled in the Santa Ynez Valley of California.  We went back the following day to explore the city. The village retains its authentic Danish look with horse drawn wagons, windmills, Danish and Northern European style architecture and Hans Christian Andersen Park, Danish pastry shops and bakeries, and quaint shops.  Okay, I was disappointed with the food and the pastries, but I enjoyed photographing this beautiful town. And of course, nature added to the fairy-tale look and feel of the village.
