Our Vacation

We have just returned from a four day, leave the kids at home, camping trip to Sandbanks Provincial Park. The weather was great and so were the beaches and the company. Our first stop was to visit Linda Swaine at Rose Haven Farm in Picton. Linda has been a wealth of sheep raising information to us and is helpful with the fibre end of the business as well. Sunday was spent snapping photos of the architecture of Prince Edward County on our way to visit Bill Stearman and his partner Gene at their shetland farm. A great time was had checking out Bill's flock with another friend, Lynn McKay, and discussing sheep and all of our plans over a delicious leg of lamb from Bill's flock. Home again and time to move my flock to a new pasture and wait for shearing time.
