Something really cool happened today that I totally forgot to mention earlier…
Okay, so it’s not really cool but I don’t get out much. So Souly and I went to this park:
It’s easily the nicest park in my county, it has wide open green spaces and lots of trees. It also has a huge pond teaming with wildlife. There are: herons, swans, ducks, coots, geese and all sorts of other creatures.
Today we fed the ducks which was super nice I really love ducks and there was a whole team of ducklings too! They were seriously adorable! Sorry I forgot to take a picture I was having too much fun. But that isn’t what I wanted to tell you, what happened was this:
We were feeding some of the ducks and this very cute goose was sleeping next to us completely unfazed by our existence, he was roused when I accidentally threw bread on the poor things head. At first he didn’t move from his position but then he lazily got up, ate the bread and wandered over to us for some more. He wasn’t your average Canadian goose, you know with the brown body and black neck and head, he was brown all over and the only one of his kind. He wasn’t shy at all he came right up to us for more bread, Souly told me how he’d almost taken it out of his hand. I was too scared to put my hand anywhere near the goose’s beak. (I actually just wrote pecker there, then swiftly hit backspace.) I encouraged Souly to feed to goose from his hand but he was also nervous.
So I bravely held out my hand and held my breath and waiting for a pecking pain on my hand. It didn’t hurt! I mean he chomped my finger and that hurt a little but he didn’t mean to. I was so happy, I totally bonded with a goose and it was so much fun and he was so cute I wanted to pick him up and take him home. He followed us for a little while which was very adorable.
So yeah! I know it doesn’t seem like much, but like I said, I don’t get out much. :’)
