Sunny day

Yesterday was a play day so we headed out to Steveston. It seemed like a great idea to walk with the grandkids along the dyke to the beach. It also seemed like a great idea to take all three and let Mommy have a couple of hours to herself. We had a great walk. Wow! Those kids are good little walkers. Unfortunately, they do have shorter legs than we do so it takes more time. And we needed to rest a bit more often.

The highlight of our walk were the Oreo cows. These cows are actually called Belted Galloways and they have quite thick and rough coats. The farm is right beside the dyke and they're herded across the dyke each day to pasture in the marsh grasses.

There was even a calf who seemed a little lonely and hot sitting out in the sun.

We did get to the beach but the batteries in the camera gave up before we got there. Must remember to charge them.

Totally OREO. I've never seen this breed before.

I haven't seen them either, rather neat.

Very unusual cattle; very oreo looking, I suppose the meat still tastes the same.
