Everything's Ducky

After a good long swim we more or less did things around the campsite today
We were entertained at our campsite in the evening by a pair of Mallard Ducks. Mr. and Mrs. Waddle just walked into the campsite while we watched for about thirty minutes and finally broke down and the girls fed them some bread.

The Waddles seemed to be having a nice time and even did a dance.

The male Mallard is a beautiful bird with its shiny green head mahogany chest and white collar. It really is a treat to see one close up.

I really liked the 1980's Honda Spree our neighbors had. The man who owns it is an artist who evidently tinkers with old Sprees and resells them.

Looking closely at the picture I liked the reflective helmet, the Coke machine, the wagon wheel bench and the bricks in the wall. The door is to the women's showers.

Before I went in to play scrabble I shot this picture of the sunset on this nice uneventful day.
