Soon, very soon, I will post more about the “why” – why did we drive all the way to the other side of the country just to look at some alpacas? For now though, these are just some pictures I took on our way there…
On our way there, early in the morning & terrible weather: Zaragoza.
The Rioja region is just FULL of bodegas and wine fields
Bilbao in Bask country. No good pictures of the city itself, but you can see weather is clearing up & Euskera (the Bask language) is not like Spanish at all.
The gulf of Biskaia – the ocean at the other side of the country. It’s a funny feeling to know we live quite close to the mediterranean sea, and in just a few hours we’re looking at the Atlantic Ocean.
Cantabria is breathtaking.
A bit wetter than Matarraña where we live… (see the rain coming)
but very very beautiful and green.
Ten little alpacas from Alpacas de la Tierruca & Alto Paso Alpacas, standing in the field outside the brand new (almost-finished) alpaca visitors & education center.
The girls of Alpacas de la Tierruca. I was spit at by a very pregnant female, she didn’t like how I was taking close-up pictures 🙂
Everything a farm needs – a barn cat, a dog and pretty stables – now converted and holding an artisanal alpaca fleece processing workshop.
We took a special interest in this gentleman… He’s three years old and might end up on our finca some day soon.
The one thing we’re missing on our finca – a river right outside the door
Goodbye Cantabria… see you again soon!
