Car Picnic at Hidden Villa


My Beloved and I took our oldest Grandson to Hidden Villa Farm nestled in Los Altos Hills. It was a cold day with a biting wind. We’d planned an outdoor picnic but five minutes into setting it up convinced us it was car-picnic weather. Much better!


Thomas tries out the goat-milking station from the viewpoint of the goat.


There are lots of friendly chickens and some flew-hopped onto the fences to say hi.


I caught the chicken to the right mid-“flight”– or at least the half in the shot.

With Love,

    Sound like a great destination, specially for children. Thomas wasn’t so happy to be a goat….but seemed to love the picnic. šŸ™‚
