Make Way for Ducklings
Yesterday afternoon, Marcia and I saw this parade booking it in front of the shop. It was a mother duck and five ducklings. They were being escorted (directed) by 2 employees of Goodwill. They didn't know from whence (I had to say that!) the ducks came , but they were huddling at the Goodwill dropoff area 5 shops east of Needle Nicely. They traveled down the front of our shops and then rounded the end of the building and were guided to the swale behind the shop. It is so full of debris that it is difficult to pick out the ducks. Of course, I didn't think of my camera until they were ready to slip through the fence to the trickle of water residing in the swale. You have to look really closely to see them (it was about 4:45 facing into the sun, not the ideal perspective for a photo op).
