Day 52

A night with the alpacas

May 17th, 2010

Rev. Marc at St. Mary Parish in Buffalo Grove hooked me up with Ray, who owns an alpaca farm in nearby Long Grove (and whose wife is the mayor of Long Grove!). After a couple of beers and a tour of the farm (which included alpaca petting), Ray let me have the run of the farmhouse for the evening.

    which one are you taking?!

  2. Jonathan says:

    Scottie will be glad to hear that you got to pet the alpacas. She wanted me to make sure you were allowed to.

  3. Gg says:

    how are you not going to give the white one on the left it’s privacy??

  4. Caroline says:

    They are glorious. Simply GLORIOUS!

  5. Christine from LI, NY says:

    omg… the alpaca on the left couldn’t hold it!!!

  6. Wendy James says:

    I just read your story on Yahoo News and checked out your website. What a great experience…I love it! Best of luck to you…Happy Travels!

  7. Claire says:

    I love alpacas! It looks like he has mostly suris; that’s unusual.
