Field Trip for Grown Ups

Remember when there was nothing more exciting than a field trip day at school? Well, luckily there is a yarn store in Boston that keeps the thrill of field trips alive for adults. Allison, the owner of Circles, just put out an invite for a day trip and I signed up immediately.
Here is what I am going to do at Sunshine Alpacas of Maine:
Please join us as we visit Lori Malloy and her Suri alpacas. We'll tour the farm, the on-site cottage industry spinning mill and hear about raising alpacas for a living. We'll also take a dying workshop and have a lunch from the Sebago Brewing Company. This is sure to be a fantastically fibery way to spend a spring day!
Apparently they not only have alpacas! They have, and I quote, "24 suri alpacas, 5 llamas, 6 angora bunnies, a million chickens, 2 Shelties, 5 cats, an African Grey Parrot named Buddie and 2 crazed people."
I can't wait to get my country girl fix. Do you want to come?

  1. Holy Schmoly! Lovin' the blog. Can't wait for you to come to Minnie. I'll save the $100 on the Alpaca trip for something else, though.
    Love ya!
