There was a window of an hour or so of sunlight between storms.
Even then the wind made the walk to the
pretty brisk. Nature Park
I took some stale bread because I knew
I’d be mobbed by the mutant ninja ducks.
The wind was keeping them close to the ground.
They were happy to come and beg for a handout.
Note the bizarre coloring that's resulted from
combinations of wild and domestic waterfowl that live at the pond.
Plenty more ducks came running at the sight of food.
The bread was pretty dry and chunky.
I was surprised how fast they could gobble it down.
The geese thought they were above the ducks.
They came right up and asked for their own personal fare.
There was enough for everyone.
Even a seagull or two arrived to carry off a meal.
A drink of water to wash it down.
Maybe two or three drinks.
Might as well wash up while we’re here.
On the way home I followed two moms with
babies in strollers and a little boy doing his best to keep up.
I’m not sure which lady was his mother.
He liked them both.
