We knew that we were going to see sheep last weekend, but we did not expect to see any wolves. I had placed a reservation through Airbnb to stay two nights at a sheep farm in Maine. The farm was only about 20 minutes from the Common Ground Country Fair and sounded perfect for us. On the way there, we stopped in Portland to grab some dinner. (A mushroom and herbed ricotta pizza from Otto's - one of my favorites!) Before picking up the pizza we made a quick detour into an empty parking lot near the harbor to change the little babe's diaper. As we got out of the car, I believe I uttered, "What the *&#$?" This is what we saw.
Need a second look?
And watch out for that wolf creeping up from behind.
Totally bizarre. See if you understand the meaning of the display.
Are they supposed to be wolves? Coyotes? Is that real fur? Why are they displayed on an old pier near the ferry terminal?
Anyway, moving on to the pastoral sheep photos. We literally had sheep directly on the other side of the bedroom door. To hear a sheep bleating while you are lying in bed or brushing your teeth is a fun experience. (At least to this suburban farm girl wannabe.) We rolled out of bed in the morning, opened the door, and petted the sheep while still wearing our pajamas.
We spent the day at the Fair and then returned to an amazingly quiet and picturesque sunset on the farm.
And of course, I now want some East Friesian Sheep! (They are dairy sheep known for their high milk production.)
