Solvang, CA

March 18, 2022

We took a long drive on Friday, the Santa Ynez Valley, Los Olivos, and Solvang.  Los Olivos was crowded as could be.  I had never been there before.  Nice but touristy.  Here’s Lynn and Chris.

The Santa Ynez Valley is about 60 miles south of Morro Bay.  We stopped here for a bloody mary but the bar had no bloody mary mix.

We could not find a bar in Los Olivos, the town is totally given over to wine tasting.  Lots of grapes in the valley.  So we drove on to Solvang.  I had never been there before either.  Here’s a small park with a statue and a tour bike.

I did not read the inscription on the statue, I wish I had.  I would have learned something.

Solvang is even cuter than Los Olivos.

We walked around looking for a bar, got to get those bloody marys.  We could have taken the bus.

Finally found the bar.  I had a diet coke.

The outside of the bar/restaurant.  It was kind of a high end steak house.

Here’s Dolly.

It was a great day.  We barbecued oysters when we got home.
