Following on from the successful alpacas visit to Martinstown W.I, a visit to the "Alpaca Adventure" near Shaftesbury was on the cards. So, Thursday 12.04.18 five W.I ladies ( Lesley, Ann, Gill, Angela & Heather) set off early to go "Alpaca Walking".
The owner Wendy Williams introduced us to our individual boy alpaca, and gave us instruction on how to handle and walk them. We followed Wendy through the fields, guiding our individual alpaca on their walk.
We would suddenly be stopped as the alpacas would come to a halt to scratch or eat grass. At the end we were allowed to stroke and cuddle our alpaca, it was like stroking & cuddling a thick woolly carpet. Then back to the yard, to have fun watching the young alpacas in their stable...one was so cute it looked like a panda, with it's black and white fur.
After the walk we went off to the Half Moon pub for lunch, then the drive back to Martinstown. Aww...what a wonderful day to remember ...lots of cute moments to remember.
Next W.I meeting Wednesday 9.05.18 @ 6.45,pm...talk from Women's Refuge.
