I adore alpacas!
So last month, my family and I visited an alpaca farm called Island Alpaca on Martha’s Vineyard. This farm has been around since 2004 and has about 19 acres of land.
Some Fun Alpaca Info
- Alpacas originate from the Andes Mountains of South America.
- They have extra large hearts and lungs to cope with the low oxygen levels.
- Be careful. They spit like camels, too. :O
Admire and Pet the Alpacas
While you can’t go inside their pens and feed them, you’re free to pet them by the fence and take their pictures. They’re still a joy to behold from afar.
Shop at the Local Market
And if you want to get a hand on alpaca apparel ranging from sweaters to stuffed alpacas, you can’t go wrong with their collections of goods inside their store.
Well, that was our alpaca once-in-a-lifetime adventure – at least on Martha’s Vineyard, haha. Have you interacted with alpacas before? Safe travels. (:
