Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to Gretchen and Shirley, the two best "moms" in the whole world. We had a bit of drama as we began to prepare Mother's Day brunch here at the Love Nest this morning. BirdCouple went down to the stream to check on the birding action and, when we got back, the power was out. No oven. No coffee. No water.

BirdCouple knew what to do. Bacon and frittata were cooked on the grill. (The glass dish holding the frittata shattered, but most of it was saved.) Water for instant coffee was heated in our JetBoil propane mini-stove we take hiking. Just like camping! And Shirley and Lisa's parents (Gretchen and Tom) had a good time.

Shirley is our guest photographer today. She shares these photos from her recent South American cruise, where she saw Gentoo Penguins on the Falkland Islands. (BirdCouple is very jealous).

She brought us a gift, because we don't have enough bird decor at the Love Nest:
