On our way to Apple Farm last week, we stopped in Solvang for a late breakfast. It is such a quaint and charming little town just north of Santa Barbara. It's actually like visiting Denmark, but you don't have to leave California!
There are lots of bakeries, restaurants and cute shops!
Whenever I visit Solvang, I always have to order Aebleskiver and Danish sausage! Aebleskiver is like a pancake only shaped into a ball. They are cooked in a special cast iron skillet. The most common way to serve them is topped with raspberry jam and sprinkled with powdered sugar! Yum!
The next day we visited several little beach towns on the Central Coast. This is the quiet little town of Avila Beach. The pelican on the left was actually posing for me!
We stopped by the Avila Valley Barn, which was full of Fall's bounty!
A little further up the coast is Morro Bay and the rock!
This beach in San Simeon is home to the elephant seal preserve! This is their home base they return to after their 5,000 mile trip to the Aleutian Islands twice a year!
