Surprise Visitors !!

Visitors......when Wellground...meet Zanzibah Alpacas !! Rob....with 'his' handcarved walking stick.......
Rob n Les with my parents...and one of the handcarved walking sticks...

Yesterday, I received a lovely phone call from Rob n Les at Wellground Alpacas...they are holidaying in Scotland and they rang to see if I fancied a little visit.....It was a lovely thought from them..to come and visit little old us a Zanzibah !

So today the sun was shining and it was a glorious day, Rob n Les arrived about 1pm and we had a good old chit chat....we had a nosey at the alpacas, the little knitting creations I have made and a chance to have a good old chit chat, my parents are here with me at the moment and obviously....the topic of walking sticks was mentioned.....

Rob took a fancy to a lovely hand carved walking stick that my Dad had made with a Black Buffalo Horn and a lovely Hazel Stick, he wanted a 'working stick' to use when working with the alpacas. This particular stick fitted like a glove and was just the right height for the task, and guess what, yes...he fell in love with it. Needless to say the stick is now on its way to Wiltshire....where I know it will be cherished. This stick was originally made for me...and Rob....had to prise it off me !!!..we struck a good deal..infact...Im waiting for the other part of the deal to arrive...we'll.....'Don't you think a top quality....Baby from Wellground..was a fair exchange !!..for an unique hand carved walking stick !!! (He He ;-0))

Infact...Im in the process of making flight arrangements....to 'Take my pick'..of the Wellground Line Up...before they change their mind !!

All in all we had a lovely day, the time just flew, they left around 4pm to travel back to the West coast...where they are staying at a Hotel. Lets hope that the weather stays kind for the rest of their stay.....

So just to round off the day...here are a little few photos..to record the experience when Wellground meet Zanzibah Alpacas !!

The posh car......even made it up the track !!....no wellies required !!

You can't beat an impromptu visit from friends - although I thought they'd gone to Italy! "Life is a Minestrone"...
