Al Johnson's Goat Cam

The two web cameras mounted on a rooftop peak of Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant are pointed in slightly different directions, so they reveal 95% of the sod roof’s surface.

If you can’t see the goats in one picture, look closely at the other…it’s a rare day that you can’t see the goats somewhere on the roof…unless it’s night-time, of course, because the goats are brought down each evening and spend the evening in a peaceful barn on the outskirts of Sister Bay.

Note that the goats are NOT on the roof in winter! They usually go onto the restaurant’s sod roof at the start of each tourism season, in late May, continuing through mid-October.
