At the time, I thought I was lost. Consulting the photo I took of the trail map of our area, I realized I had made a wrong turn and was approaching a different village than I expected. Okay, fine, I'll plod down to the next fence post, then turn around for my trip back up the hill towards home.
Hello, what's this?
A field full of fuzziness! Can you say, "adorable"?
But wait, there's more!
Squeeeeeeeee! A baby, too!!!! With a little coat on!!!! Hi, baby! You are the cutest!
Look how fuzzy.
We have a saying at our house, thanks to Tory. "I want a llama!" (The inflection while saying this line has to be just a teensy bit on the whiny side, but not enough to truly be a whine.) The line is usually applied to rodents: "I want a prairie dog!" "I want a chinchilla!" "I want a degu!" We do, however, also love llamas, alpacas, and their relatives, so I was thrilled to see these darlings.
Plus, it gave me an excuse to slow my running even further. Always a good day when that happens.
