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