Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival 2010

Cherry gets a kiss from a llama

Alpacas are cool critters with great big eyes

This alpaca must be a country alpaca by the way it's chewing on that straw

Can't have wool without the sheep
This weekend we tried something different and attended the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival at the Clarke County fairgrounds in Berryville, VA. Our good friend Cherry ventured out of the city to join us in the country. There were a good number of animals present on the fairgrounds. You could wonder around and enjoy sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, and even rabbits. The main attraction was the variety of yarns and raw fiber that was available for purchase. If you are a knitter and you are looking for something a little special for that next project, this would be the place to be. We killed a good couple of hours visiting all the vendors and then headed to downtown Berryville for a great lunch at the Camino Real Mexican Restaurant. Enjoying a day out with friends is what life is all about. Get out and try something different once in a while; you might like it!

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
