Yo! Ho! Ho!

Sam and I are back from our cruise!!  I have a feeling Rob guessed where we were going!  Admittedly it was not a long cruise - a trip to East Cowes and back! - but it was brilliant! 

Sam loved the boat and we had a very excellent and very large breakfast on the way out.  Red Funnel Ferries provide a leaflet telling you about the sights you pass which Sam found very interesting.  Now I can tell you nothing about Cowes as we went there with a mission!  We were met at the Ferry by Sandra and Mike from Warrenfield Alpacas who took us to see their herd.  Lovely couple and very nice animals - they have had a stunning crop of cria this year and a happy time was spent rummaging in some very outstanding fleece.  Sam was very taken with Mike who had a most intriguing garage - I don't think Sam wanted to leave!  Particularly as he fell in love with these two!
It took quite a bit of doing but I also succeeded in wrestling one of Sandra's young lads away from her (alpaca lad that is!) - so sometime soon I shall be introducing a young Witness boy to the Westhill herd!  There is rather a daft story to follow on from this - but I will tell you that tomorrow when I have hastily emailed Sandra!!


  1. Sounds like you have had a great trip, and a super new addition to the herd too. I am sure he will be fab. Well done Rosemary and Sam.


  2. Sounds like you had a lovely time...and looks like you have a lovely lad....into the bargain !!......Jayne

  3. Sounds like you had a great time, looking forward to seeing some photo's of the new boy in town!
