We went down to the National Mall/Memorial area this afternoon to feed the ducks. We drove around for a while looking for parking, finally found something, got out of the car and there were two ducks sitting right in the grass. Perfect!
These ducks would have eaten right out of our hands. They came a little closer than I would have liked!
Imogene loved, loved, loved the ducks. She was calling at them and reaching for them. She might have thought they were some form of dog that she could pet? But she was just tickled to death by the whole experience. She wanted to throw the bread too, but she mostly just dropped it right in front of her.
See how close they got?
We walked over to the water, and found two other very feisty ducks who tried to hurt each other. I was also really worried about Lily being so close to that not-so-safe railing!
It was so windy today and yesterday. Here's proof of just how windy it was...
Fortunately, this tree fell backwards and not to the right. If it had fallen to the right, it would have certainly landed on our house, and probably right into Imogene's room. However, it would have crushed that deck furniture we tried to sell at the yard sale, and have hoped someone would just take out of our driveway! But really, the fact that nothing serious happened when that tree fell, and that it's on the property of the apartments next door is some needed good luck for us!
