There's an interesting pseudo open space or park near our new house. Miss 23 affectionately dubbed it "the sinkhole" which has stuck. The kids love to go down to the sinkhole and chuck a ball around. Except if it's raining. When it rains the sinkhole becomes the drain that it was always intended to be. It becomes wet. And muddy.
If it keeps raining though (we had a glorious day of rain yesterday) the sinkhole becomes more than just muddy. It becomes a pond. And ducks appear. (How do they do that? Do they just live nearby pondless and then get all excited when it rains and they pass the sinkhole pond on their way to the shop and decide to go for a dip instead?) We have only been here for a month and I have noticed the ducks about four times. I guess it's been a wet month! After I spied the ducks the first time I knew I had to get a photo to record this phenomenon.
So today on our way to the library to get new library cards ( we moved to the other side of town and have a new library!) I made Bradley stop the car so I could take some photos. Two birds with one stone! Ducks recorded for posterity and new library cards. It has been a good day.
