Penguins are one of my favorite animals at Busch Gardens. They love to pose for the camera, play and hug each other. Viewed through the glass they were one of the few birds permitted to be outside during migration times and to keep avian flu from spreading. The tropical vegetation surrounding the Penguin display reflects in the glass and makes the penguins seem to have exotic patterns.
Today is Holy Saturday for Christians, a time between the death of their Savior and the resurrection. The body had been placed in the tomb, but because it was the Sabbath they were not permitted to preserve the body. Fasting and prayers continue for Muslims on the 15th Day of Ramadan; while Jews celebrate the 2nd Day of Passover.
Today is also World Semicolon Day; an important day for suicide prevention; pause and carry on living; write the rest of your life story. 😉
If you haven’t had breakfast yet, try some Eggs Benedict on National Eggs Benedict Day. If you’ve already had breakfast; why not have Eggs Benedict for lunch? 😉
