Womens Walking Group

Thanks to Wendy's invitation, 12 walkers visited the Peerless
Alpaca Farm.We learned alpacas are sheared in May each
year.The llamas are sheared only at the midriff.The wool is
then sent to a mill.Contrary to belief,llamas do not spit at
people.Llamas are also used for pet therapy.With seats
removed from a van,the llamas will enter by the side doors
and sit on the floor for the ride to the different nursing homes.
Next monday the 18th.we will walk to the Mill Bay ferry.
Leaving the Legion at 10am.    V.M.
