There is a pond nearby filled with a variety of life both aquatic and avian. Turtles of all sizes from silver dollar to large cabbage line the shore sunning themselves. As we approach they plop into the water and wait just off shore to see if we have anything to offer. The alligator who lived here this spring has moved on or been removed.
The newest additions to the pond are two white ducks who remind us of the Miss Blah Blah sisters from The Aristocats, one of our favorite films. They waddle and quack completely ignoring the pair of mallards and mamma duck who have lived here for years.
