The Forecast: dry, sunny, mid 80’s, not much wind.

The Vendors: 11 of my favorites from near and slightly far (Lisbon, Maine is totally driveable on one cup of coffee — that’s how I measure distance these days).

The Alpacas: AWESOME!!!!

Lots of happy faces all over the place. In short, perfection.

Thanks to one and all, it was a fantastic day.
