My friend, Ilissa, and I were dead set on having a day trip this weekend as we were craving quaint town strolling with some nature. The weather was bad, but we didn't let it stop us. We chose Solvang even though we know it's old people town, but Danish pastries are tasty and it's just fun to stroll through a small town drinking tea. Even though I live in this area code, I never make it out here because normally if I'm going north, I'm just going to Santa Barbara. We stopped by a miniature pony farm (the highlight of my day) and made it up to Mission Santa Ines too. This day reminded me that there's so much to do around here and hopefully next time we can do hiking around Lake Cachuma and go wine tasting.
