Parks and farms

This Saturday I visited a city farm especially to see their alpacas as I really want some. There were also massive turkeys, horses, pigs, giant and mini rabbits and funny chickens. I took a few too many pictures, but my favourite pens were definitely the alpacas (which were slightly smaller than I’d imagined)

and the Silkies are just too cute and funny looking to be left out

Getting there and back involved a long walk with only 1 or 2 sights, but the farm itself was fun.

Sunday was spent in Crystal Palace. The park is laid out nicely and even has dinosaurs in the lake

It’s sad to think that the sphinx statues and terraces are all that’s left of the original building. Judging by the size of it all, it must’ve been very impressive in its day. It’s a great place to look out over the south of the city.

The weekend reminded me of how much I want to have land and livestock of my own. Maybe one day I’ll be able to knit with alpaca yarn made from my own alpacas!
