October Trip

I recently went to Kentucky for my “Annual October Visit”.  It’s my favorite time of the year, the weather is cooler, the leaves are starting to turn.   This was the first morning there looking out my old bedroom window.


This is the view from the front porch.  It’s so peaceful early, early in the morning, but things don’t stay quiet there for long.IMG_2217The cattle my dad raises were coming up for feed. IMG_2218 There were several baby calves born while I was there.IMG_2210 IMG_2211IMG_2212While my sister, Kay, was working at a farm co-op store,  she became acquainted  with the owners of Black Watch Alpaca Farm near Harrodsburg, KY.  Paul and Deb invited us out for a visit.  Their farm is beautiful, the alpacas are gorgeous and Paul and Deb were a delight to meet.  This is Paul introducing the girls.IMG_2222My sister, Terry, says hello.IMG_2223I can’t resist giving a rub behind the ear.IMG_2226Here are more of the girls.IMG_2230And let’s not forget the boys.IMG_2242Thank you, Paul and Deb, for a wonderful afternoon.

I will post more of my “Kentucky” adventures next week.

See ya,
