My New Favorite City

If you look real close you can see a whale spray out there.

We ditched school Friday and took my parents and Justin's brother Paul to Pigeon Point Lighthouse.
(they were both in town for Drew's baptism)

This visit was awesome thanks to the multiple whale sightings, my dad's spotting scope/binoculars, some beach exploring, and a picnic.

 There's another whale out there.

After the lighthouse, we drove a few miles up the road to explore some more Pescadero.
Harley Farms is a goat farm that does tours and sells their worldwide award-winning cheese (they beat France!).

I don't always love goat cheese, but when I do it has cranberries on top and walnuts in the middle.
The ricotta was my favorite, but I couldn't think of any way to prepare it that would do it justice.

 Apricot pistachio, cranberry walnut, and "Monet" goat cheese.

 They gardens where they grow the edible flowers for their Monet cheese.

 Justin had to hold back the urge to milk those goats.
Okay not those ones, those are babies.
But their moms.
(his first job was milking goats and scooping poop)

 This room was so cute. They host private events and dinner parties there.

Next stop: Arcangeli Grocery for fresh garlic herb artichoke bread and olallieberry pie (not pictured).
Both were amazing. The pie was better than Gizdich, the usual favorite around here.
 On the way to the grocery store there was this pile of free stuffed animals.

 Just what Mom wanted.

Some fresh produce samples before heading home.

Had a lovely visit in cute Pescadero.
Home of the free stuffed animals and $18 pies.

I love all those fgreen rolling hills and bright colorful flowers. So much green and fresh and organic. Makes SD seem very dry and processed.
