An Outing to a Quaint Village Yonder

The other day, my parents decided that we should go for a nice outing in a quaint little town, a bit over an hour and a half away from where we live. The sky was filled with fluffy cumulus clouds:
I am so excited that these came out well through the car window!
This one reminds me of when the mighty horn shall blow and we all ascend to heaven above! Oh, when shall that day come!

This evening, we heard thunder, and forecaster predicted a thunder storm. I absolutely love storms, and am sorry to admit I did not capture any pictures, even though this was an AMAZING lightning storm. It's purple bolts streaked across the night sky, and was HUGE even though it was a ways off!
A sweet windmill...
We arrived around lunchtime, and ate at a charming sandwich shop. I ordered the English Cotsworth Cheese sandwich, and it definitely was the best cheese sandwich I ever had!:)
And this is my favourite shop in Solvang. It is full of lace and handkerchiefs and dollies and dresses and tea cups and charms and cameos and so many more Victorian delights!!! I could definitely spend a lot of money in there!:) However, out of all the sweet lovelies in there, (including a cameo pin I set my heart on) I only purchased a small soap, rose-scented soap (because the things in there are very expensive.) Mother purchased for me a beautiful charm for my charm bracelet for my birthday on the twenty fiveth! I am not going to reveal what the charm is, but you shall have to wait for pictures!:)
If you are ever shall meet me, I shall definitely take you to this charming little village named Solvang!
Lots of Love,

P.S. I do regret that I did not take more pictures of this charming town!:)
