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!!
