4th of July
There is quite a population of ducks here in the marina and it being Spring and now Summer it is breeding time. We get to enjoy the mother ducks and their ducklings as we walk and move around the marina. The other day we were out in the dinghy and drifted up on a group of ducklings and their mother. Since we were just drifting they did not really take off until we were about 1 foot away. Great fun.
