|♩"Get your motor running! Head out on the highway!|
Lookin' for adventure 'n' whatever comes our way!...."♩
... and I was ready to roll! I just knew we were headed somewhere really fun - and I was right! We drove out to Tuttle Creek Reservoir/Dam/Lake/Ocean/Whatever!!!
It was a nice, blustery day, so we had a blast looking around.
|"Check the water level, Mom!"|
We've actually had some rain - and the snow! - so the water level has come up a bit. It's still about 11.5 feet lower than normal, but it's come up some!
Since I see so much better than Mom, I try to spot things for her.
|"Mom! There are some funky-looking ducks out there, bobbing for fishies!|
Out past those floats!"
I don't remember seeing these ducks before, so I made sure to point them out. Mom had to zoom way in with her camera, and this is what she came up with:
|Picture-in-a-picture -- female ducks with crazy punk hairdos!|
Our aunt said they're Mergansers. Cool! I didn't know that, I just knew I liked their crazy hairdos!
|"Hey, girl ducks! Great hairdos!"|
I hope the guy ducks appreciate their style!
... back behind the chin rest. Got it.
In case anyone's wondering, we didn't walk down closer to the water because we had rain and snow lately that melted and our gravel path and the hill are covered in slick mud. Oh, I know! I see no problem with that, either, but apparently there are rules about muddy paws and Mom's car. Hmm. Go figure.
I hope you had fun on our adventure! I loved having you with us - and seeing some new ducks!
