Take a Hike

24 May

This weekend’s hike was courtesy of the downtown Indianapolis Canal Walk.  

As always, my partner in crime was R., my lovely mother-in-law. 

 

We went Saturday, mid-morning.  The weather was perfect and healthy post-walk snacks were had.  

 And we saw this adorable creature:

Isn’t she the most interesting colored duck you’ve seen?  We met a couple along the path and they were quite familiar with the odd-duck.  They had apparently seen her as a duckling last year.  She has  three odd siblings, and four of the normal shade.  

When we met the couple, they were admiring one of the odd-color siblings and her new flock of babies.  All of whom were normal duck color!   But according to the bikers, the location that they were swimming and preening was the same location the Odd-Ducks grew up last year.  So amazing that she returned ‘home’!

 Never have I seen such fat, happy, well-fed ducks then at the Canal.

If you're ever in Indy, I cannot recommend the Canal enough for a fun stroll.
