Goats are back!

The city has once again brought in goats to clear brush on public land to reduce the risk of fire hazards.

They brought in hundreds of goats once again.

Daddy goats, mommy goats, and even baby goats.

White ones, caramel-colored ones, dark brown ones.

This goat did not like me taking pictures of her and her kid.

She looked at me as if to say, “You’re lucky this electric fence is here.”

Baby goat pee!

Fortunately they’re hard to hear when we’re inside.

Things to do in PV.

It’s been just over two months since we moved away from LA and settled into the hillside of Palos Verdes. We’ve definitely prepared more of our own meals as going out no longer means walking down the street into Downtown Culver City. Still we’ve managed to find a few local things to entertain ourselves.

This is the Trump driving range. No denim is allowed on the driving range, which I think is ridiculous for being in Southern California. Still it’s a great driving range, where you can hit off of grass. It costs $30 for all day driving. While that’s a bit steep, you can start in the morning, take a lunch break in the clubhouse, and finish up in the afternoon.

There isn’t much that stays open on PV past 9:30 PM, so bars are out of the question, except at Terranea. Nelson’s is situated right along the coast, and it offers fantastic sunset views. I hate the food here having tried it on multiple occasions, but they have some decent craft brews on tap. I’m always happy to settle for a couple pints and some scenery.

Palos Verdes has a very active community that is committed to preserving the land on the hill in its natural state. That means there is a large canyon behind our house with trails for hiking. Michelle and I decided that we needed to do this, and so we hiked up, up, and up. I believe we made it up the whole Palos Verdes hillside, and that is when we decided we don’t like hiking.

In short, we’ve only got a couple more things to do on the PV checklist before we run out. So please come visit us. Thanks.

We moved to a farm?

I got out of the shower and heard the bleating of a goat. I looked outside and saw two goats.

 

Me: Michelle, come out here! Do you see those goats?
Michelle: Whoa!
Me: Holy crap! Look over there!

“What are you goats doing in our backyard?”

As I type this they are still outside, munching away on the grass.
