“Ahhh…alone at last.
What a beautiful spring day.
The sun on my face, feet in the water.”
“This way everyone, this way…
Over here we have a lovely high-altitude salt water lake that may suit your needs.
Plenty of larva, small insects, algae, and shrimp for the most discerning palettes.
While it gets a little cold at night, it’s a wonderful place to raise a family.”
“Um, excuse me.”
“Oh, sorry, didn’t see you there.”
“No problem, but you see, I was looking for a nice quiet place to get a little rest and relaxation. A spring break if you will.”
“Are we bothering you?”
“Well, there are quite a lot of you.”
“A flamboyance of flamingos, I’m afraid.”
“Do you think you will be long?”
“Just a few months.”
“You could join us. We are about to start the dance.”
“Dancing? I love dancing!”
“Well then, let’s go.”
