Back To Zanzibah Land !!.......

Back to Zanzibah Land......shortly after this cuddle.....Duke spat at me right in the eye !!.....



Some of the Elite girls.....grazing at Wellground Alpaca Stud......


Billy Jean.....part of the Wellground Management.....Team !.....


The wonders....of Wellground......what a view !



Well folks I have returned back from my holidays......


I have had a fantastic....time, I have lots to tell, so much so that I have decided to do it in chapters....or else I feel that this might be a never ending blog !!.....


I have experienced the Wonder of Wellground....!! I have flirted with a new romance.....being namely Close Encounter....I must admit....I couldn't resist his charms...what a handsome fella he is.....I just had to have a cuddle !!


We have had a great time, the weather and hospitality has been second to none. I have experienced the excitement and fear of flying on my outward bound flight.....honestly sitting in front of a screaming 4 year old....'wanting to get off and complaining its falling...really isn't the ideal experience.....especially after not flying for over 12 years...at one point I felt like joining in....with him.......you know what they say...' if you can't beat them.....join them' !


Thankfully, the return flight was quiet, quick and by then, I actually enjoyed the whole experience and the assortment of sweets and snacks.....during the journey.


Anyway back to my holidays.......the week just flew over, we had one or two business trips, mixed in with a trip to the North Somerset Alpaca Show.......where I met Dave and Mrs S ! of Apple Vale Alpacas......I was introduced to Bramley...and Dave was very successful with one of his white girls.......we had a quick look round the Show.....and then back to Wellground HQ.


It was lovely to meet a fellow blogger..and have a chit-chat and admire his alpacas...in the flesh.
My accommodation was first class.....the company was wonderful, I even had the added extra a lovely hot water bottle strategically placed in my bed every night.......sometimes I found the odd bone or two under the duvet.....!!!! to my surprise......my little sleeping companion, I named the 'Bed-Bug'.......she is actually one of the Russel Sisters.......you know who you are..!!
I have also made a new friend.......Billy Jean the Boxer.....and Annie Specs....the other Russel Sister......we have had a wonderful week....of fun and laughter.....with the odd surprise or two thrown in for good measure.....


I have experienced...the Ladies...that Lunch ! experience.....more on that another day.....I have done a little retail therapy.....whilst on my holidays.....well sometimes....there is the odd Nick-Nack....you just can't resist.....and you just can't quite fit it in your hand luggage....!!!


I have.....introduced Billy Jean to the wonders of Homeopathy....!! and also Rob and Les......a little chicken rescue......I have had a crash course on stomach tubing a baby alpaca....hows that for a buss-man's holiday...and that was within the first few hours of my arrival, as Taffy Bear had just been born and he need a little help, one week on and he has been delivered to Honeyfield Alpacas......today.

I have lots of lovely photographs and tales to share......

I returned home last night.....all is well .........back to reality......

Im sure.....I left Toto.....some-where....on route.....back to Zanzibah Land......



I fell like its all been a bit of a dream !!!!!

Glad you enjoyed your holiday and got home safely. I always had a sneaky suspicion Billie Jean was the Wellground Mastermind!

Almost brought a tear to my eye - it was lovely to meet you Jayne, albeit too brief - great that you had a good time at Wellground, and hope you feel re-freshed and re-charged. Dave and Joy.
