We bought a bird book and I traipsed behind her taking photographs of pigeons, sparrows, ducks, sparrows – exotic birds of all sorts. I’m not complaining because I’m a bird lover too.
I love her quiet love of nature and animals. Her vegetarianism stems from this. Just the other day she was reading her PETA-kids magazine and asked me if I would eat fish if they were called “sea kittens”.
The hotel had flamingos and penguins. Honestly. We learned a little bit about the mating habits of the latter. Miss R and I had a running joke about going to see if the baby penguins were ready yet.
