I stayed in a little town called Solvang, up by Santa Ynez area. Solvang was founded by Danish immigrants in 1911, and modeled to be like a cute little Scandinavian town. Having been in Copenhagen myself, and owning a dog from Denmark, I found this to be a particularly amusing coincidence. The town was adorable, though it didn't really remind me all that much of Copenhagen, it did have a cutesy little European town feel to it. Here are some pictures I took while out wandering around (and eating a really tasty Danish!)
|Great little streets for walking with cutesy shops|
|Covered walkway between buildings|
|The front of my hotel had both the USA and Danish flags flying|
|I thought windmills were more of a Dutch thing?|
I flew home from CA on the red-eye flight Saturday night, spent Sunday doing laundry and packing, and then yesterday I drove down here to Raleigh NC with Kiba, Seri, and Strafe. I am house and dog-sitting for a friend of mine while she's in Europe, so her house will be my base camp for the next 8 days or so. Her dogs know me and my dogs know her house, so everyone is pretty comfortable although 6 dogs is more than I'm used to watching.
