Bit O' Denmark in California

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Solvang is a city in central California and is re-created to look like a Danish town. Several of the shops and restaurants in the area have windmills like this one.

I have never been to Denmark, but I imagine this building looks very similar to the real thing. If anyone knows, I would love to hear from you.

Imagine yourself having coffee and a warm, sweet Danish pastry here.

I love these kind of towns, Have you been to Leavenworth Wash.? And then the town of Mt Angel Or.? Being from Germany this really is to my liking Can't beat the old country, Altho it has been yrs since i have been home.
And yes i can't imagine having that pastry.

I have been to Denmark maybe 40 times, and well, you MIGHT find something like this. But it is not typical. It is the extreme tourist variety.
