Meet my friends. They are all named Al. Al Paca. They live at Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm. The farm is gorgeous and looks more like a park than a ranch. The animals are all well groomed, well-fed and well loved. We arrived at feeding time and we were permitted to hand-feed a couple of the beautiful creatures. One cria was bottle-fed to help mom out.
As you can imagine, my camera was snap happy. I took some wonderful pics and Amoeba did, too (which is how I got a pic of my hand feeding the alpaca). At one point, I put the view-finder to my face and was adjusting the camera lens for a close up, when Oreo decided to investigate the camera. Even though her nose is a bit out of focus, this is my most favorite pic of them all.
If you ever get to San Juan Island, mark Krystal Acres Alpaca Farm a “must see” on your to-do list.
