Feeding the Ducks

Our daughter lives on the Fox River also.  She lives several miles down river and in town.  They have daily visitors coming to see them.  They are the area ducks.  The word is out that whenever anyone comes out of the back door, it is time for a snack.  When we were visiting last weekend, we went down on the pier to see how high the river was.  It is still pretty high, but it has gone down a little. 

My daughter and I checking out the river.

What a life, just standing on a log watching the river flow past.

Then it started to rain but the ducks didn't care.


We headed up to the house and so did the ducks.

It was a short shower and the rain stopped.

Ewan showed us the corn they were going to feed to the ducks.
 
He began throwing the corn out there.

A little more corn and here they come.
 
 Soon the ducks finished all the corn and returned to the river until next time.




Dylan borrowed my camera and took a few photos of his mom's roses.  He did a good job.  They are so pretty.  It was a good day and proves that you don't have to live in the country to enjoy what nature has to offer.  It's everywhere, you just have to look.
