Shearly Delightful

Jessie came to visit this weekend, and on Saturday went went to a Sheep Shearing Festival! It was in Waltham at Gore Place.  It was a beautiful day- quite warm.  I’m sure the sheep were quite happy to be getting sheared!

The festival was a ton of fun! We got to see some shearing…
