Camels on the Creek (2)

Much to my delight, in the morning I got a tour of the farm via the morning chores.

First you feed the goats and llamas:

Morning Goats!

Watch out Edward, I think I might have found a new beau

Here’s Carolyn with Kermit the sweetest bull camel you ever want to meet.

So then Carolyn made a Texas-sized eating plate of breakfast:
(How does that go, Amy?)

After the morning chores, Carolyn, Stevie and I headed out for a tour of the ranch. It’s so big you should take the mule to see it all lest you exhaust yourself before lunch.

After the tour, Carolyn & I rode in Waco to, yes, go to the gun store (conveniently located in the same building as the BAR!), and to Kinko’s to get my press cards made (If you are reading this and work / live / communicate with a motorcycle shop and want some, email me your address at alisa@motoadventuregal.com and I will have some sent to you to promote the fundraising work I am doing…

Mary came up to us at the Kinko’s and thanked us for what we were doing–she is a ten year breast cancer survivor. So she got added to my top box. Oh! I haven’t yet mentioned my top box…a story for another day.

back to the ranch…

Carolyn is a farrier by trade (horse-shoer), for two decades now. She’s one cool chick for sure. Horses, camels, goats, motorcycles, and a crack shot, she should wear a wonder woman outfit 🙂

Then we did a repeat of the evening chores and had venison sausages on the grill for dinner. I went to bed in the guest house exhausted just watching Carolyn work all day.
