To ring in the New Year, we traveled up the coast to Solvang, “the Danish Capital of America” near Santa Barbara’s wine country. We saw some of the usual touristy sights – windmills, horse-drawn carriages, the mermaid statue...
We sampled ebelskivers and saw what little we could of the Old Mission Santa Ines...
But what we really went up to Solvang for was motorcycles. Vintage motorcycles. On a tip from a friend we went to the Solvang Vintage Motorcycle Museum. And saw lots of sweet sights of another kind…

1920 ABC Sopwith
