last thing I expected...

On my mini vacay with A,
we saw the last thing one expects to see at the beach.
You won't be able to guess.
What do you think?
I'll give you a moment.


Uh uh.


Not it.

Okay, I'll just tell you.
Yes, you heard correctly.
I did say goats.

A and I were walking on Pismo Beach when we saw two white things moving around. From far we thought they were dogs. Then as we got closer, we thought they might be sheep.
Lo and behold, they were two sweet goats tied up and grazing on some shrubbery.

A surfer guy with dreads was nearby so I ran over to chat with him.
I asked him "what's up with the goats?"
He said in his so cal, surfer guy accent, "they are surfing goats.
They just hang out on the beach while I surf."
I asked if they were his pets and he responded yes.
And on that note, he ran out to jump on his board at dusk.

Now I've seen it all. 
A nighttime surfer and his pet goats at the beach.

A and I spent the next 15 minutes wondering how he got them to the beach.
Can you image a vehicle transporting two goats and a surf board to the beach?
Gotta love Pismo for things like this.
Makes for good memories.

I don't think we will ever forget the time that we saw the goats at the beach.

Ha! I love goats. Hubby and I saw 2 random goats on the side of a mountain a couple years back on a shopping excursion. One of them was literally half black and half white. Straight down the middle. Like he was meant to be a siamese goat twin or something.

Gotta love goats!
