Fiber - Not The Food Kind, and Some Food

 Yes, I've been absent.  Things have been a bit.....weird around here lately.  Sorry for the absence.
I do, however, have some fun stuff for you.  So hold on - photo heavy!

Last weekend, we went to the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival.  It is held in Berryville, VA.  It's beautiful country.  It takes us about an hour and 10 minutes or so to get there from here.  It was GREAT weather for the day, in the 70s, and breezy.  As you'll see, there were some clouds.  I fell in love with some of the animals.  This little beauty has beautiful eyes and my photo does NOT even come close to showing that.

I found the markings and coats on these animals to be amazing. I also couldn't get over the look in their eyes. 

The one above is really cute - but no, this little one wasn't posing.  It (boy, girl ?) was scratching it's back with it's horn! 

I took some shots on the way home.  Luckily, I wasn't driving!  ha ha.  I am SO happy with this shot.  If it was bigger, you'd see the blurriness (slight) of the bushes in the foreground.  But the camera did a GREAT job, considering we were going close to 70 mph!  Doesn't it look like it should be a puzzle???

I also like this photo of the pond.  It would have been nicer without the guardrail and I guess I could crop that out.  But then I think I'd lose the depth of the photo.  Again, notice the mountains in the background. 

Ok, I saved the best for last.  Yes, this is a camel, lying down.  A very LARGE camel!

Well, that's it for this post.  I will have much more in a few days.  This is going to be another busy weekend for me, so I will probably not post again till Tuesday.

Take care of yourself.

I've always wanted to go to this festival. Looks like you had a great time. We're getting packed up for the New York Sheep and Wool. Do you plan on coming to that one?
