Safe in mama's wake

It already seems a long time ago that we were able to get together with family for a week of building memories. I'll share a few snippets as time permits.

Spotted one day was this raft of ducks (yep, it's called a 'raft' - I looked it up), led my mama. The babies had not yet learned fear of people as the readily paddled over to us and waddled on the shoreline, much to the delight of our grandchildren (well, actually all of us).

They had learned though that paddling was a little easier in mama's wake.

Raft, now that's interesting... now I can say I've learned something today.

Your shot of is beautiful, as usual. I love the wee ducklings, they're so adorable and precious as are all babies.

I LOVE your new header, where was this taken at? The stone building is stunning, what would you call it? A gazebo? Whatever it's called I would love a bigger yard just so I could put one of these up, flowers and all.
