Winter Solstice – Matariki

Monday, June 27th, 2011

With the shortest day officially behind us Cheryl and I took a couple of alpacas to the Matariki Fair in Carterton on 26th June.  Attending the fair was an opportunity for us to ‘talk alpaca’ with a number of people, a subject dear to our hearts. Our Alpacas For Sale board was scrutinized closely and several people took copies home to ponder.  It was bitterly cold and although we were under cover the wind was biting and we ended up moving inside. We were glad to get home to a roaring fire and hot soup that Gordon had ready for us. We weren’t surprised to find on waking the next morning that our first frost of the winter had settled on the ground and that the nearby Tararua Ranges had their first coating of snow.  Time to bring out the alpaca scarves and knitwear!
