Swimming with ducks!

The funniest thing happened tonight. I was deep in my own thoughts while swimming and next thing I know in the corner of my eye I see two ducks on the edge of the pool about 4 yards or so away from me. At first I thought I was losing my mind…have he comps driven me so crazy that now I see things??? So I stop and sure enough there is a pair of ducks, one female and one male. So never mind the set that I was in the middle of doing, I swam over to check them out. How cute!

My coach told me that the two have been hanging out at the pool for the past couple of weeks. Now how random is having a pair of ducks hanging at a university pool in the middle of the city????? too funny!

So after a while the two jump in the pool, my coach had mentioned observing the way they paddle in the water. So there I was cleverly getting close under water and next thing I see is the ducks swimming away while the drake pooped IN THE WATER. I so did not need to see that since I swim in THAT water. Anyway, I decided to get over it and continue swimming. They provided much entertainment to my otherwise uneventful swimming session!!!

The two ducks in the picture above are not the same ones as tonight’s. I took the picture above while we were in Black Canyon about three weeks ago. I will post more about that later, but we canoed down the Colorado River for about 11 miles and this pair of ducks come along with us the whole two days. It was the coolest thing! I love ducks, not only are they cute, but they are so yummy too! 🙂
