He is staying warm, eating all sorts of NYC treats, and taking the subway everywhere.
Well, Blake’s Duck # 1151 had a change travel plans, and has finally turned up in Roswell, Georgia! While here, he has befriended boxer dog Winnie Mae, and has done some cycling. This traveling Duck plans to add a new state next week, but experience indicates it is best not to announce the destination until actual arrival!
Ducky has had quite a whirlwind week – jetting via airplane from Los Angeles, California to Charlottesville, VA (home of Thomas Jefferson). There he visited Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s famed estate (see grave photo, as well as photos of Ducky swimming in the frozen basin in front of the home), sampled local cuisine (Charlottesville’s famous Bodo’s Bagels), and saw three movies in a row! Favorite was of course the newest Star Wars!
From Charlottesville, he journeyed up north to Montreal, Canada by car in time to see the Montreal New Year’s Eve fireworks over the river (in negative 14 F temperatures). Along the ride, he enjoyed some Taco Bell.
Next up, a visit to New York City!
Happy Holidays everyone! Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I found some family relatives on my travels–it’s always so great catching up with family!
Henry’s Ducky is spending the holidays in Silver Spring, MD. Silver Spring is a suburb of Washington DC. Henry’s Ducky hasn’t posted a few of his last stops – but he recently spent time in LaCrescent MN and Freeburg MN which are both along the Mississippi River in the hills of the driftless area. Henry’s Ducky is staying with two furry dogs named Jupiter and Comet and two humans. One human is a software engineer and develops computer programs. The other human works at FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine which is the government agency that is in charge for making sure animal food and drugs are safe for animals like the pets in your home and the animals on farms. Over the holidays Henry’s duck is looking forward to doing some hobbies – like making pottery on a ceramics wheel and attending dog agility class! Stay tuned for his holiday adventures!
Oh boy, here we go again! I just flew into Tampa, and are my wings tired! Here I am, anxiously waiting for the plane to take off in Los Angeles.
Just a quick stopover in Atlanta on our way. This flight is taking forever! Pretty sunset though.
And we made it! Tampa looks a lot like Los Angeles, beautiful sky, palm trees…really pretty! Here I am, traveling through town on the back of a golf cart. So fun!
Now for the exciting part—we drove across the state to Kennedy Space Center! It was so cool! I got to meet this nice Astronaut, learn about space, and saw the actual space shuttle Atlantis!
Are you ready for this? I found a long lost relative, hanging out at Kennedy Space Center!!
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, get ready for this. I took a trip to the ocean one day, and while I was hanging out on the pier, A REAL LIFE SHARK SWAM BY!!! I know it’s hard to see in the photo, but THAT IS A SHARK!!
Well that was one heck of a trip. Next stop, NEW YORK!
Tyler’s Ducky recently returned from some fun in the sun and water over in Tahiti. Ducky spent time laying on the deck of a beautiful hut in the water, swimming with tiger fish and sharks. Ducky even went to a sea turtle sanctuary!
Next up, Tyler’s Ducky will travel to Indiana to spend time with his cousin’s friends and will hopefully get to help decorate for Christmas!
Hawaiian Keiki (Kids)
Aloha from Maui! I was able to travel most of the island of Maui! Maui is the 2nd largest of the Hawaiian islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. I road on the popular “Road to Hana” and saw many waterfalls and bamboo forests! I also drove up to the top of Haleakala, the world’s largest dormant volcano! I also watched traditional hula and chants! I had a great time learning the culture of the native and local Hawaiian people. I’m headed back to “the mainland” as they say; Portland, Oregon, here I come!
The O’Neill boys took a road trip to Colorado to snowboard over Thanksgiving weekend and I got to go along! The snow was cold but the pool was warm…I felt right at home!
Ducky did some sightseeing downtown Minneapolis. He visited Prince’s star at First Ave., Target Field, US Bank Stadium and the Cherry in the Spoon!
