Sun Shines Everywhere 136

Rhiannon Theurer took a family vacation to Key West, Fla., last year. While there, she posed for this photo holding a huge fan of good ol’ fashioned local news, Mr. Peaches the cockatoo. The couple met at Nancy Forrester’s Secret Garden, a sanctuary for abandoned parrots. Since Theurer remembered to bring her Alameda Sun along, she and Mr. Peaches immediately became fast friends.
