So.....Saturday we were off at last. Birdie led the way across country towards Huntsville.
Looks like a lot of motorcyclists out for a Saturday ride and lunch in one of the towns we passed.
Our destination was an Alpaca Ranch owned by some close friends of Birdie's. They were off on a trip of their own but graciously gave us their ranch for the weekend. I'm parked on the circle drive and Birdie is just behind me on the right.
These were our neighbors. They have 5 alpacas, two horses, a couple of great big dogs, and about 3 cats. The big dogs were off visiting with their son so that made it much easier with the dachsies. They got to run around in the big fenced back yard and take lots of walks around the property. Harley got plenty of ball time in too.
It was really pretty there and the weather was beautiful.....a bit cooler and surprisingly little humidity which is unusual for east Texas.
The neighbors were taking care of the animals while Birdie's friends are away. Birdie has stayed there before and taken care of the animals while her friends took trips before too.
The alpacas really are cute with huge eyes and long eyelashes.
We gave them some treats.
They have a "lion" cute from when they were last shirred. Their wool is very popular.
We had a closeup visit with the horses in the barn too.
