My Lake Walk

Yesterday I went on my walk to my lake. I call it my lake, but it is not all mine. It is not far from my home and is a beautiful spot in the middle of the city.

This fella kept his eye on me. I don't think he was frightened of me. He was checking me out to see if I had any bread for him.
There are signs posted saying not to feed them since it is bad for their health. He told me not to pay any attention to them, cause he did not care about his health. He heard bread was excellent to build strong bones in ducks like him.

Someone planted all these for me....I am sure...I know they did. Aren't they pretty?

I sat right here to think about whether I believed that duck. It took me quite awhile to weigh all the options he gave me. I decided that he was pulling my leg, so I moved on.

Then, along came some other guys to try and change my mind. But, hey, you can't sweet talk me!!

Would they be upset if you actually brought grain or something healthier for the ducks. Probably, because ducks can be very demanding. I was almost chased off a path by an angry duck! Lovely photos --- a nice walk.

What lovely spring pictures! Nice walk to the lake, and you've captured the ducks nicely. I think that duck was pulling your leg. Ha!

I would love to live near a lake. Actually, we do have several within driving distance and they have ducks.

However, I no longer drive and no one else seems to be interested in going to a lake. Maybe when the temperatures soar again I can encourage some enthusiasm for being near cooling water.
