6:25 am - PDST - Sunday - 48º F, humidity 88%, wind - CALM.......supposed to be clear blue skies today, but too early to tell.....😋....forecast high today is 65º F....we have decided to stay in Lompoc a few more days past Sunday.
Saturday started out with clear blue skies, no winds and a promise of temps in the 70's and that is what we got. We decided early on that we would do some more exploring.......there are a couple of Spanish missions (La Purisima and Santa Inés) as well as the Danish themed tourist town called Solvang.....we have been to Solvang before, but it has been almost 20 years.
In all there were 21 missions in what was known as 'Alta California' back when Spain, and then Mexico controlled this land.......
Unlike La Purisima where the entry fee was $5/car to do your own self guided tour, the fee at Santa Inés is $5/person, so we opted to just walk around the grounds.....the main sanctuary was closed to the public this day anyway due to a scheduled private event.
We were on our way home by 2:30 pm arriving back at the Elks Lodge just before 3 pm.....just in time to watch the two 'Final Four' NCAA basketball games featuring Gonzaga vs. South Carolina in the first game, and then North Carolina vs. Oregon in the second. Both games went down to the wire with Gonzaga eeking out a 4 point victory over South Carolina, and North Carolina a 1 point victory over Oregon.....both games could have gone either way, which is all for which I always ask. So Monday will see North Carolina v. Gonzaga for the National Championship.
Thanks for stopping by!
