Last week, enough events finally coalesced: I made a trip up to the new Stately Tea Manor in decent-enough weather and with a (borrowed) camera, and managed to record Mr. Ducky’s sojourn.
First up, we had to stop at a certain rest area. It’s in Springfield, New Hampshire, between Exits 12 and 13 along Interstate 93 North, and I caught my faithful companion enjoying a truly majestic vista.
But we could not dawdle, so we moved on.
Once we arrived, we were greeted by a delegation of the new neighbors. I’d never really seen wild ducks (well, mostly wild) ducks so closely, and I was amazed at how beautiful their plumage was — as shown on these two handsome specimens.
No wonder Mr. Ducky was so eager for this move.
I think this is going to work out OK.
