Goats at Oceanfront Estates

Nomadic goat herds roaming the hills and canyons of Rancho Palos Verdes recall another era, if not another century.  It’s refreshing to see progress can take us back to the past as well as hurl us into the future.

Actually, I thought it would be perfect to take this photo with an overhead drone to capture the something old, something new combination, but alas, we had to settle for the lowly iPhone of my son, Josh, as he drove from one home inspection to the next last week.

Grazing goats, chomping away at their own speed, are clearing the open spaces on the Palos Verdes Peninsula of overgrown vegetation before the fire season arrives after a very dry winter.

No multi-tasking here, they are simply putting one foot in front of the other and focusing on the job at hand.  Not a bad way to approach the day, and I suppose it helps to be hungry.
