Farm Sanctuary

On Saturday, my daughter, her boyfriend and I took the long drive up to Orland to visit Farm Sanctuary. We've been wanting to go for a long time and with his impending departure for college we were running out of time. So we left a little after noon for a 2.5 hour drive knowing the last tour was at 3. Anyone who has ever driven in the Bay Area knows that this could be a dicey proposition. I kept picturing us arriving there with no one around to give us a tour. Luck and the traffic gods were on our side and we arrived around 2:20 and they took us on a tour right then. There isn't much to say that the pictures can't tell on their own so I'll let them tell the story.

You can donate to Farm Sanctuary here.

I'm going!!! And I couldn't be more excited. I'm coming out to CA in September and my parents have to go to Sacramento so I'm going to tag along and they've agreed to spend one day for a side trip up to Orland. I love the picture of the turkey with her mouth open. It totally looks like she's saying, "Hey there friend!"

Love those animal close-up pictures! We have all sorts of animals here at our home in Ohio, but of the wild type only: deer, raccoons, coyotes, rabbits, skunks, squirrels, etc. Either way, animals are awesome and you caught some in really great pictures.
