As far as Lolita meets go, this was definitely the most unusual (and the most fun)!
We took a trip to Chichester where we went to Dunreyth Alpacas - Alpaca farm!
Now, alpacas are quite rare in the UK, and are actually quite different to Llamas which they are often compared to. They are a lot smaller and also generally have a much more placid and kinder temperament.
We met the alpacas and some of us were introduced to out own individual alpaca which we were then allowed to lead around.
My alpaca, Dusty, was super cute, a little shy (he wasn't sure about being stroked, though he got used to it in the end ^^) and very well behaved compared to some of the others!
As we walked around we noticed some peoples alpacas were more naughty than others! Some of them enjoyed eating the foliage at the side of the path, and some liked to brush themselves up against the holly bushes :) Dusty wasn't bothered about the bushes or the foliage, though he did like a bit of grass on the hillside and he was scared of the giant puddle we had to walk around! I thought it was unusual that all the alpacas were male, though we were told that the males are far more well behaved than the females ^^
We were super lucky with the weather and though it did snow a little, it was dry and not too cold.
Enjoy some more photos from the day!
After visiting the farm we went into Chichester - a beautiful Hampshire town. We decided to go to a cute bakery/cake shop and there we enjoyed tea & cake!
