Urban Alpacas

I live in the  metropolitan area of Adelaide, South Australia. Yes, the suburban life for me. It keeps me close to all the conveniences a busy family could want; e.g. schools, universities, shops, hospitals, public transport and entertainment. (Not to mention sealed roads and footpaths for wheelchair access.) Don't get me wrong, I love nature and the countryside, especially the coast, but at my current stage of life and family, it suits me to be a suburbanite.

One fine day in 2014, during a driving errand, I had to look twice: was that an alpaca I saw walking along the footpath??

AKA Amigurumi Apparel: Bondi Bikini

Summertime in South Australia!

Our temperatures have been soaring in the high 30s (°C). That's in the 90s (°F) and above for my non-metric friends.

One of my favourite ways to cool off is to go down to
the beach at the end of the day once the sun is low and
not so sizzling.

Of course, Kwokkie Doll is all prepared.
After last month's report, she swapped her red sundress for her
"Bondi Bikini"!
