We're about 130 miles north of Los Angeles via Highway 101, or a 40 minute drive from Santa Barbara. Here's an idyllic combination of ranching tradition and blossoming Wine Country - a perfect weekend get-away for Southern Californians.   [more]

July 4th in Solvang 2015

One of the highlights on the central coast, the little town of Solvang celebrated it's Fourth of July parade. Bringing lots of locals and visitors out of the woodwork, this parade is a annual fun-for-all.

Shown here is one of the charitable groups known as "Operation Christmas Child", which collects useful items (sometimes toys) for young boys and girls around the world as gifts for Christmas, an activity that is sponsored by some of the local churches.

Complete with antique fire trucks and local hay-balers, always a fun time. And, as always, music in the park. This evening: fireworks on the grounds of the Santa Ines Mission.   [more]
