On a recent trip to town we stopped by Dairy Queen for a sundae. Cherry for me and Hot Fudge for Far Guy. We always go through the drive through, I manage a sundae in both hands until we arrive at our favorite sundae eating spot down by the river. Chance knows I will share with him..but Far Guys chocolate is off limits.
We watch the water or kids and dogs in the park, or ducks.
A mama Mallard led her family out of the water then she headed back to the water for a bath. She splashed and splashed. Water flew everywhere. The reeds were tall, I was hesitant to get too close…a long time ago I am sure I was chased by a duck.
The babies stayed huddled together on shore.
As far as I could tell there were four babies. Good sized and already resembling their mother. I watched where I stepped and was grateful for plastic shoes that are easy to wash off. There was poop everywhere. I am certain it must be from all the adult Canada Geese and not from these cute little guys:)
