Clear Kayak Adventure on Gorgeous Lake
We will meet at a quiet lakeside park that is easy to find, respecting social distancing. We will walk across to the boat launch where the sanitized kayaks will be in the water ready and waiting for you. All you have to do is get in. Participants will get a quick demonstration if necessary, depending on experience level. I will provide life jackets and ensure they are fitted properly. Less experienced participants can paddle around close to shore until they feel comfortable, this usually takes only a few minutes. Participants can decide on a guided tour or to go off on their own. There are many beautiful things to see, blue herons, beaver dams, sometimes beavers, muskrats, hundreds of birds, turtles. Of course I cant guarantee you will see wildlife but its highly unlikely that you wont. After the paddle participants can choose to picnic or barbq or go to a restaurant by the lake. The timing is flexible so let me know what time you would like to come and I can schedule to suit you. I had to put a start time in but I can do morning, afternoon or evening whatever works for you. This activity is affected by the weather. If it is raining or too windy we can reschedule for another time or I can refund your money.
Alpaca Pig Tour at MillenSmith Acres
* WINTER TOURS; please dress warmly - the farm is quite windy + we'll be walking up a hill so please make sure you have appropriate footwear. Also, due to the fact that our pigs are spoiled divas, they will NOT go to the pond in inclement weather. Instead, we'll enjoy some time with the chickens and ducks in addition to the pigs and alpacas :) You'll start your farm adventure learning about our Alpacas - why we have them, some basic care and handling practices and then we'll move into the pen where you can get up close and feed if you wish - this is not a petting zoo so touching the alpacas is not guaranteed. Sometimes they're groovy with a neck scratch, sometimes they'd rather just a photo opt - either way, you'll be in for quite the experience! Next, we'll introduce you to our rescue pigs, Jolene and Billy Ray - they aren't shy to the limelight and would love a belly rub or ear scratch. We'll give you some info on pot bellys and WHY they're one of our fave farm friends. We'll finish off the tour with the pigs down by our pond where you can feed them and refresh with a beverage yourself :) There will be lots of opportunity for photos, so don't be shy! Other things to note Please note that we're a farm that loves on its farm friends but we do not guarantee that the animals are always up for pats or snuggles - we're not a petting zoo.
