The Duck Arriveth
Last week duck #405 arrived from the States ready to be photographed as part of the Duck Project on Flickr.
My main concern? That she (I decided right off that it was a she) would not survive her time in my apartment with the Yowler of Yaletown, who, apparently loves duckies so much he nibbles them....
I have a list of places to take her, and my trustee camera in my bag. So I put to you two things:
1/ If she were your duck, what would you name her? Names that have already been suggested are Lola, Dalai Ducky and Hodgson (first name of one of my favourite authors and a current Vancouver resident, Barbara Hodgson).
2/ If she were your duck and you wanted to show her your city, where would you take her? I've been told she must go sample the java delights of both the ubiquitous Starbucks as well as the fiercely indie coffee shops, go to at least one protest at the Vancouver Art Gallery, and take a dip in English Bay.
