Llamas in New York


To be honest, one of the only reasons I chose to stay at Clove Cottages (near High Falls in upstate New York) was because of the llamas. They have two, Sugar and Cocoa. If they’re curious that day, and you look interesting, they’ll come up to the fence and whiffle softly over your face. They don’t much like petting.

The cottages are very sweet, although a little funky. But what can you expect from buildings that are nearly 80 years old? The floors slope, they smell of old wood, and they are thoroughly charming.


The llamas have been great fun to draw.
