  • Photo TR: Sunday Drive to Santa Ynez and Solvang

    Last Sunday Kristi and I decided to take a little drive. Our plan was to go up to Chumash Casino to lose some $$ and then to Solvang.

    It turned out to be a gorgeous day and we got some great photo's. I thought I'd share with everybody.

    Heading up the 101, the Pacific Ocean looks more like a lake it's so calm. You could see the Channel Islands VERY clearly.



    Nice open highway, my kind of driving





    The Driver is having fun



    Going through La Conchita we waved to Barry, but didn't see him. We tried to get a picture, but again, going 75mph makes that kind of hard.

    Crossing the bridge over into Santa Ynez valley



    We stopped at Chumash first, spent an hour, lost $100 and that was that. Nice Casino, but I don't think we'll be coming back anytime soon. This is our 2nd time here and we just lose $$ too quick. The Blackjack tables have a MINIMUM of $10 per hand, which is fine but at least give people the option of $5 blackjack. The Casino wasn't busy AT ALL.

    Next over to Solvang to get some yummy cookies.



    Mortensens Bakery ... YUMMMY!!!

    If Epcot had a Dutch Pavillion, it'd probably look like this



    Last time we made the mistake of going back the 101 from Solvang. Which took another 45 minutes. This time it was back the way we came through Los Padres forest.



    More beautiful views









    Hope you enjoyed our little drive.

      Thanks for the report. I grew up around there and spent a lot of time in Solvang. The Chumash casino has taken my cash every time I've gone there. I'll still stop by the casino when I go back in March.

          Great pics of the ocean. I don't think I've ever seen the islands to visible. I love Solvang too, and Pea Soup Andersons.

            I might be going to Solvang this weekend. My family goes up there quite often. Last time we stopped at Chumash I played for an hour with $20 even though everyone in my family lost their money early on. I always make sure to get danish waffles whenever I go there.

                I used to love riding those huge bisycles around Solvang when I was younger

                    Spent my Honeymoon at the Chimney Sweep Inn there at Solvang. It's a wonderful place. I love to go over to Buellton for some Split Pea soup when I get the chance too!

                      I was probably at church during the time you drove past our little hamlet last Sunday morning...or maybe going the other way on the 101 since the church I attend is in...get this...Camarillo (where the Clinks all live)!

                      Anyway, great report and pics, Gregg! I am blessed to have those same views almost daily driving along "the rincon".
