The other day we took Rachel over to Solvang. It was founded by Danes in 1911 and now has a population of approximately 5,283. It’s this cute little town with lots of Danish influence. Lots of cute shops, restaurants, bakeries and other cute places. I just thought it was cute!
We also headed over to the Santa Ines Mission. There are 21 missions total in California. If you haven’t heard of the missions in California, Wikipedia explains what they are really well. Check it out here. They are really old and interesting buildings. Usually you can take a tour of the grounds, but this one was closing, so we took some outside pictures.
Since it was jut about sunset and we weren’t too far from the beach, we thought we might be able to get some good pictures at the closest beach we could find.
