Little Ducks all in a Row
Looking up the street yesterday we spied a group of Montessori Preschoolers crossing the road at the crosswalk. They were too far away for me to capture the picture, but they reminded me of little ducks. Little ducks wearing bright red vests, following one of their leaders.
As luck would have it, we caught up with them in the ravine. They were going to see if they could see the fishies in the fast running creek. You see, this is the time of year the salmon begin their spawning and if we are lucky, we get to watch them while we stand on the bridge overhead or in the children's case, 2 at a time while a leader took them to the "shallow, very shallow" bank. It is an awesome spectacle to behold. Last year their numbers were amazing, this year, we've only spotted two.
Unfortunately for the little duckies, the water was running far too quickly for the salmon to swim up the West Mundy Creek but they all had a chance to go see for themselves.
