Love the Donkeys

February 27, 2011

It’s ok to take a day off from sailing or diving and head inland a bit. Head over to the Donkey Sanctuary for a few hours. The lovely animals will pull at your heart strings and leave you feeling good. Pack up at least 5 loaves of bread (Cultimara has day old bread for sale in the back) and some bags of apples or carrots and head to the Donkey Sanctuary!

They do good for the local donkeys that otherwise would be hit by cars or suffer during our sometimes drought. Kids and adults enjoy being at this habitat. Bring lots of me, it will be most welcome.

Check out for more information. You can even adopt a donkey. Many of my clients have already!
