We have an interracial goose/duck couple that lives in our moorage. A dark colored little duck and a big white goose. Natalie named them (as she does all the local animals).
They never leave each other’s side. They swim around all day and Heidi Klum never shuts the hell up.
Once I asked Nat if she thought that they realized that they are entirely different breeds, and she said “it doesn’t matter, they just love each other…plus Heidi Klum is SO pretty.” (and she is quite the goose)
We love them with slight caution…ever since John and Yoko (the mallards) lost their babies and then left us we’ve tried to not get too attached.
It’s echoing across the water.
It’s like the entire island is listening.
…and everything else just disappeared from my mind.
This moment is perfect.
