What a good couple of days out of town will do for the body. R&R definitely played a part. This past weekend we took off for the gold coast of California or at least pretty close to the coast. Solvang, CA located 30 mi. south of Santa Maria (which by the way is like 70F year round, really not fair). Then again, when we went to Solvang it wasn't much different. This Danish town is located in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley and sure was beautiful. On our way there we had to stop a few times. What is a family getaway without the routine "I'm not feeling so well!". Lucky for us, this happened twice. Although once we got there, everything was better.
After playing around a little bit we decided to take a walk around the village, trying the Dutch pastries and looking around at nick nacks.
Our condo didn't have a bad location either looking out over the back of the resort and the lush, green, rolling hills.
Monday morning, after waking up and letting the girls sleep till they felt like waking up (around 9am) we got ready to head off for the falls, Nojoqui Falls to be exact. Nothing too spectacular since it hadn't rained in quite a while but pretty nonetheless.
All in all, we had a really good time.
