Monday, March 20th
We left our lovely hilltop site early because we had a small concern regarding our booking for our next campground.
I had, or thought I had, reserved Flying Flags in Buellton for the night on Monday night. The plan was to go to Solvang for a walkabout, some coffee and Danish Pastries then in the afternoon drive over to Flying Flags for the night. Despite several call by RPI (a camping membership company) and us we had heard nothing, so we went straight to the campground and booked in for 50% off using a membership connected to RPI. That was fine with us, so we parked, connected the electric cord and drove the 5 miles to Solvang.
This is a cute little tourist town founded by some Danes in the early 19th century. Danish styled buildings, bakeries and coffee shops cashing in on everything Danish. They even have a replica of the Little Mermaid. We had a cup of fantastic coffee and some Danish pastries from Mortensen's Bakery. Very delicious. A couple of pastries to take home and we then went back to the RV Park.
Here are some photos of our pastries and other things we saw in Solvang
