aebleskiver time in Solvang

Solvang Flare
Towards sunset and we found ourselves in that little part of the USA resembling a miniature Denmark. There's the little mermaid on one of the street corners, a windmill and many half timbered houses in a Danish design.

It was faintly disorientating with the cross between some Danish words, then finding shops selling native american goods.

For us, Solvang was an overnight stop on the last part of the journey towards Santa Barbara.

We stayed in a pretty motel, kind of Danish style, dined al fresco and in the morning sought out the aebleskiver which are a kind of cross between a round waffle and an apple cake.
I'm not sure if they are really designed for breakfast, but with a cup of coffee they sure tasted good.
