Lilly and I took a walk to the neighboring cove this morning and sat on the dock. As soon as we made ourselves at home, a Duck with an attitude came swimming over to us from a good hundred feet away and with a giant, sharp "QUACK," she put us in our place.Spring Duck by AkashapeaceShe then ran back over to the dock across the way and out came 7 little ducklings, feathers all a-fuzz, not quite swimming in single file. Mrs. Duck led them all over to us, as if we were on display, showed the kids the funny lady and the furry lap dog. Only 4 made it to us without distraction, the other rebels found a docked boat far more interesting.
Tilly's Journey by AmberAlexanderMom left the obedient 4 and sweetly called the others and they all made it to the zoo (although Lilly and I weren't behind glass; we could have easily jumped the barrier and made their outing far less fun).One loop around our dock and they were on their way. I think Mrs. Duck was complaining as she left about her old man doing the slalom course out in the middle of the lake with his homies. Don't laugh, I saw them. It was like ducky X-games out there!
Have you been outside yet today? If not, what's your excuse (not sure there's a good one out there)?
