Harley Farms Goat Dairy | Pescadero

The white wooden gate to the garden swung shut, the metal latch clanging against itself.  It's was an unusually warm day in Pescadero - 80 degrees and sunny.  So warm in fact, that when our tour guide shooed the goats out of the loafing barn to say hi, half of them immediately turned back around once her shooing stopped to return to the shade.  The other half was so excited to see us that they all peed at the same time, in a row.  We were at Harley Goat Farms in Pescadero for the adult-only tour of the farm and it had already exceeded my expectations.

Hog Island Oyster Co. | California

Cars line the street, letting you know that you are close to your destination before any buildings come into view.  Gravel made from oyster shells paves the parking lot.  A wood paneled beige building with smokey blue trim and a "Live to Shuck" sign in front of it greets guests as they arrive.  You get the feeling you've stumbled into a hidden small town hangout, even though Hog Island is well known in the Bay area.  Employees go about their work in their Carhartt jackets and thigh high waders.  The place hums with steady movement.
