Duck Derby

Since I gave a tiny glimpse of the Rubber Duck Derby in my previous post (that Blogger reverted to a draft during it's outage and was kind enough to cut half of it off. I had to bring up a cahce version, copy and paste as a new post and repost it sans comments *grumble*) that I would share a few of the photos I took at the race. After some sadness, the 'Great Blogger Outage' and surviving Friday the 13th (the best day of the month!) who doesn't want some cheerfulness ala Rubber Ducky? :)

Coming over the falls.

Go, Ducky Go! You're in First!

Just floating on by.

Grouping up at the finish!

I'm off to spread some mulch, do some weeding and hit up Artisphere, Greenville's giant annual art festival this weekend. What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. We have a duck race here too. Stranger than fiction watching the rubber duckies floating down the river.
    We are gonna finish the prep work for the great moving of rooms at Casa de Cuckoo. GK really needs her own room. I'm afraid if we don't get the move done soon, she might eat Ry. Just being who he is...he destroyed their DVD player this morning. Had to separate them cuz I saw her fangs come out. We work on Sat. and then Sunday Mom is off and they do something with her.
    Have fun.

  2. Great duckies....and may I quote "Ernie": Rubber Ducky, you're the one!" I love their sunshades! Thanks for the smile, Danni. We are doing garden chores, and installing ceiling fans in the bedrooms. Hoping to save on a/c electricity.

  3. Oh my gosh!! I so want to go to this! That last picture is awesome!! Are there numbers on the bottom and people each get assigned a number to see if their numbered duckie wins? Cuz if not, they should totally do that!

  4. Cool! Our duck race is down a channel with no rapids - too fun to see those duckies dive down the waterfall!

  5. Awe i don't think we have a race here!

  6. LOL!!! These photos are delightful! And happy belated birthday to your loving and wise husband.

  7. Oh how cool! I wish they had a Rubber Ducky race around here!! Thank you for your words of wisdom on my blog....

  8. OMG this is fantastic. I've never heard of such a thing before. And I come from a town that has bathtub races. How is it possible we don't have rubber ducky races too!?!

  9. What a beautiful and place and the fun bleeds through your words; I'm a bit envious. Of your mulch spreading too. We live on a 7th floor. We have a terrace, but they are doing repairs this year (painting and stuff) so I can't plant outside *sigh*
