Awww Monday November 25, 2019

We spent a few hours this Sunday having 
a lovely walk along the Columbia River. 
We came upon two men quietly feeding the
many ducks and a few sea gulls. Silently tossing bits 
of bread while the numerous birds noisily enjoyed a snack.
I carefully walked or should I say waded through
these ducks and gulls so I could talk to the men.   
They come here almost every day. 
I felt like they were the Pied Pipers of Ducks
since so many of the ducks followed one man as he left.
However, after a bit, they turned around and went back to
the river bank.

Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Aww! what a nice story I liked the photos of them, I hope the ducks didn't drive you quackers after a while :-)

    Have a quacktastic day :-)

  2. If he kept feeding them, they would follow him all the way home.
    Yes, that is wading through birds!

  3. They must really love that guy! We don't have many left here since most of them have flown south by now.

  4. Awww, so precious. They will follow anyone that feeds them. We used to feed the ducks at our marina. They were everywhere. So adorable.

  5. Awww, what a sweet picture - I'd love to sit in such a beautiful place and feed ducks each afternoon.

  6. Dang, was the spirit of Alfred Hitchcock lurking about?

  7. Looks like a lovely afternoon!
