We've been home bodies while in Arizona this week - venturing out of our air conditioned comfort only to shop or do chores like taking the car in for servicing, etc.
On one such outing we discovered a lovely duck pond in one of the retirement communities nearby so we stopped to take pictures. Well, that lasted 5 minutes - maybe 7 - until the oppressive heat sent us back to the cool comfort of the car. I did manage to get a few pictures though.
Ducks are such fun to watch. They were at the other end of the pond when we walked down to the water but when they saw us they all jumped in and started swimming toward us. I was bemoaning the fact that I hadn't brought any bread for them to eat when I saw the sign forbidding any such feeding of waterfowl. I guess the ducks saw us reading the sign because they immediately veered off away from us - smart creatures.

I've been having a bit of a problem with pictures lately. Some don't post right away but show up later as HUGE pictures in the middle of the post. My apologies if this is what you're getting. I'm still trying to sort the problem out.
