Above are photos from yesterday morning’s sunrise.
On Saturday I received a Facebook message saying that Bambam’s owner was going to sell him and offered to sell him to me. I was thrilled since he is Jocko’s son. I really miss Jocko, and I really wanted to breed him one last time so I can continue to have mioget wool for the next 10-15 years. He died just days before I was going to breed him, and my mioget ewes are 8 and 9 years old. So the opportunity to still breed for my favorite wool color was thrilling. Plus Lewis needs a ram buddy. But I had to convince my husband that we NEEDED another sheep.
I managed to persuade him partially because he is my Christmas present and also because he realizes he married a crazy sheep lady.
So today I drove to Seabeck to pick him up. This involved ferry rides. The ferry ride westward involved a gorgeous view of the sunlight on the water, Mount Rainier and another ferry.
And here he is on the ferry heading east.
On this ferry ride there was a gorgeous view of a sailboat, part of the Seattle skyline, and Mount Rainier.
Here he is in his new (but temporary) pen.
And here he is with Wilma.
