I gathered up my courage and went in search of the nest. [I do not have a picture of this process. Just picture me getting all big and fluffy.]
Spotted! There she is!
Her domestic partner:
Nice! This is easy.
While Jim confronts the angry goose, Marlin watches from the Jeep.
Jackpot! Isn't she gorgeous?
BLARGH! Okay, I'm going! I don't even like eggs!
Annie and Carolyn predict goslings in about a week. This mom takes two short breaks a day to go for a swim and see a movie, the rest of the time she is sitting just like this. The spouse stays close and keeps a very careful watch on the surroundings; he chased away a very large blue heron who was fishing a little too closely.
We really enjoy "getting away" over here. We've made a few upgrades on the coach, and I think it's looking pretty good.
Thanks, Carolyn and Annie, for the hospitality! Before it starts looking entirely like Christmas Vacation, we'll fire up and drive it outta here.
