I headed back to summer for a few days

Last Thursday we went to a wedding at Glengariff Historic Estate at Dayboro, north of Brisbane. The wedding was beautiful, the weather was beautiful, and the location was beautiful. And I always like a wedding with ceremony and reception all in the one spot.

After the wedding we only had to cross the road to reach our lovely accomodation at Dayboro Cottages and Llama walks.

This is the view that greeted us in the morning.

It was a truly beautiful place to wake up, on a warm sunny day.

We said hello to the llamas (and one maybe alpaca-cross below) and then we had to be on our way.

K had to head home but I stayed the rest of the weekend, spending time with friends and family. When I told them about the llamas, my friends insisted on continuing the theme by taking me to see the alpacas near their place.
Gap alpacas.
I thought these white ones looked a bit like sheep with stretched out necks! They were not at all shy to pose for my camera.

I loved that it's called a "llama walk". What a beautiful place for a wedding. I like it when the ceremony and reception are in the same place,too. Less confusion and hassle. The sky is so blue and the weather looks perfect.

What gorgeous views! They keep llamas with sheep around here because they'll chase coyotes off.
