According to Moonalice legend, the tribe first came to Pacific Grove in search of asylum. Apparently, the tribe had inadvertently wandered on to the course at Pebble Beach and found itself under assault by small white projectiles fired by middle-aged people in funny clothes. Despite the scruffy look of the tribe at their gate, the town mothers of Pacific Grove asked the Moonalices only one question: do you have an occupation? The silence that followed was painful, broken only when someone said, “butterfly ranching.” That’s what we have been doing here ever since.
