Duck Pond

Rich and I often go for Sunday walks, and one of our favorite places to go is the Duck Pond just south of campus. It's fun in the spring and early summer because there are so many new ducklings swimming with their moms, and there are so many little kids who are so fascinated with all of the ducks.

Today, we went for our walk, and we saw the funniest (and cutest) thing. First of all, when we got there, all of the ducks were all cuddled up taking naps on the shore of the pond. We've never seen so many of them out of the water at once. Then, we got a closer look at the pond and saw this:

In the middle of the pond on this log were these ducklings and turtles taking a nap together. Not only that, some of the ducks were sleeping right on top of the turtles!

These were our favorite ducks. So funny! And then, one of these two ducks fell off of the log and tried to scoot in with the three on the other side, and that started a fight because there was not room for four.

Oh, the duck pond. The water may look gross, but the ducks sure are entertaining.
