Waterfowl are so fun to watch. Their mannerisms are so funny and their personalities come out when you watch them interact with each other. I was fortunate enough to find a HUGE group of ducks and gulls off of Channel Grove in East Harbor.
I really had a great time watching this giant flock.
In March 2021, it seemed like the world was thinking about waking up a little and coming back to life. We started doing office days where one person on staff would get one day (that way we weren’t around someone not in our household still) and that was a nice little start to normalcy.
