Today we were out the door about 9:45am. We headed to the town of Solvang to the Belgian Café for breakfast. It was a cute little place that had the best waffle I have ever tasted, but it was the most expensive waffle we have ever eaten. It was rectangle not round and it was served with 2 pieces of bacon and a few pieces of fresh fruit, I had water and Jesse had a cup of coffee and the bill with tip $26.83. OUCH!!
We walked around and found the visitors center. Solvang was founded in 1911 as a Danish-American colony. We also learned that they were famous for Aebleskiver, a Danish dessert served with raspberry jam and a dusting of powdered sugar. So we had to try one. An order comes with three Danish and we shared. They were good, Jesse liked them better than I did.
We walked around this little town and the shops.
We moved on to the Old Mission Santa Ines. We walked through this self guided tour learning how it was built by the Spaniards to convert the Indians to Christianity.
The grounds outside the Mission
After we left there we drove over to the Ostrich/Emu farm. They are very smelly but funny animals. We bought a bowl of food to feed them, I am not sure how to tell them apart.
After the farm we went home to the boys, they were happy to see us.
For dinner I had defrosted some vegetable soup I had made a few weeks ago and baked some rolls to go with it.
We computered and watched TV for the rest of the evening.
