Ducks Have Their Home Back

It was just too damp to go sit and watch the parade Saturday. Late yesterday we decided to make a run through the park, doesn't take much to make us happy, huh? The park was a mess, not with litter. I'm not sure if the visitors were that neat or if the city had already cleaned up. The pretty green grass had ugly wet ruts everywhere. The people had to park somewhere, so it wasn't their fault. I'm anxious to see what if anything the city will do to make it look better. Probably hasn't rained that much before and during Cowboy Homecoming since it started. It was always in August and was so hot and dry the attendance was probably much better this month with the cooler weather. The small trailers and barbeque pits, and people were all gone. The carnival booths and rides were still loading up, while the ducks were swimming peacefully down the middle of the river.

I'm glad the ducks are happy! /and YES vehicles sure do tear up the ground when it is too wet. We see the same thing usually in the spring at RV Parks. Like you said, "These vehicles must be parked somewhere.,,,,,

Hope the city can do the repairs reasonably. When I see it I think wait until it is dry(er) and take a steam roller to it. LOL

I can just imagine the damage. I hope the city has the money to straighten it up.
The ducks could probably care less about the visitors leaving - unless they were getting a lot of food.

The ducks that come to our pond each year came back about a month ago.
Pete sits outside every evening at dusk dark and watches them fly over his head into the woods. I suppose they are not on nests yet and are roosting in the trees?

...I'm sure they're happy to have some peace and quiet at the pond once again.


Vehicles do leave ruts it's true. Glad the ducks still have a place to congregate.
