Small Town Pleasures

Joining the Time Traveller for long walks around a small town in southwestern Ontario provided delightful sights. I saw hearts within the sunflowers.

And stars in the daisy-like blooms.

And prize-winning horses feasting in idyllic pastures.

But perhaps the most fun was meeting two kids with pet ducks, named Benson and Swift.

Now, these are not ordinary ducks. No, sir. These are Indian Running Ducks. They stand tall and move fast and are surprisingly personable. They were a great hit with the toddlers in the park, where we left the ducks to paddle in the creek while we enjoyed an open-air gospel concert. There's never a dull moment in small-town Ontario.
