The Wetter, The Better

We’ve had our share of extreme summer heat this week. At its hottest, it was 45 degrees with the humidity. So when my friend called me on Sunday for a last-minute stroll by the river, I jumped at the chance to dip my toes in the water.

We drove down to Westboro Beach with our cameras, but it quickly became apparent that we were about to have a thunderstorm. We spotted some older ducklings and their mum, stuffing themselves with whatever it is that ducklings graze in the sand for.

I’m surprised they didn’t fall over from eating so much~ look at those crops!

Within minutes, the winds picked up, the skies closed in and the river turned black. As the rain started to pour, we hightailed it back to the car, and just barely made it before getting soaked.

The ducks decided that wetter was better, and headed back out on the water.
