This week, for the first time, I am participating in You Capture over at I Should Be Folding Laundry. The theme for this week is the feeling of fall. Hmmmm…well, just this week did the thermometer drop below 90 degrees (we spent one weekend day at a water park all day!); however, when I think of fall I think of farm visits.
Did you know that this past weekend was National Alpaca Farm Day? We made the short drive to Fairhope Alpacas for a visit to the alpaca farm. I am so glad that we did! We saw so many beautiful alpacas and the owners were so friendly and welcoming to all of the farm visitors. My children thought the alpacas were hilarious but “stinky”. We spent some time watching a very cool spinning demonstration and couldn’t get over how soft and beautifully colored the yarn was. Even if you missed Alpaca Farm Days, you can still visit the alpaca farm. Email the owners to set up a visit! Not going to be in the Gulf Coast area soon? Check out the National Alpaca Directory to find a farm near you.
You can find Katy and her alpacas at her blog (Yay! A fellow blogger!), Alpaca Farm Girl or on Twitter as @alpacafarmgirl. I wish I had a chance to meet Katy while we were there but she was very busy with all of her guests! Hopefully we will make it to their next open house!
The alpacas were so curious about all of their visitors! When we went from one end of the barn to the other or when we wander outside, they constantly followed us!
