Day 3-Alpaca Farm on Way to Orcas

Monday, after a leisurely breakfast at the cafe in Roche Harbor, the van was repacked and we headed off on more pre-camp adventures.  A few projects were being finished on the ended up on the dashboard for a quick shot.  That is the top of Alice's head in the review mirror. 
We made two stops on our journey to the to the ferry and our ultimate destination, Rosario Resort and BMFA's Sock Camp
Krystal Acres was truly beautiful.  After making many purchases at their Country Store, we headed out for a brief tour of the farm and met some of the sweet alpacas. 
This one is named Houdini and will be the sire of all farm offspring this season! 

We were able to pet and feed some of the animals-they are very social and like to be with their pasture mates.

The other stop we made that morning was a vista point for whale watching and a short hike to a lighthouse.  I managed to snap a few shots there, too.

I didn't see any whales, but the view was fantastic.  Some people stayed back to work on projects....I am glad that mine was shipped ahead so the vista point wasn't missed.

Oh, that reminds me...the packages are finally on their way back home, stuffed to the rafters with yarn.  UPS tracking is fantastic...if you are obsessive, like me, you can check on your package's progress hourly.  The last time I checked the two boxes departed West Sacramento, early this morning.  At least they are off the island and moving in a southerly direction.
Tomorrow's post will be a consolidation of camp pictures...socks and funky monkeys.
