THE REAL DUCK POND April 1, 2005Posted by wmmbb in Uncategorized.
If you were a sceptic, the real duck pond, or dam, does exist on the escarpment. As you can see it has suffered by the the decision to drain, and therefore destroy it as an ecological feature. Good thinking. It is now not so much a figment of my imagination, as figment of my memory.
You may be wondering about the spelling. Don’t. More often than not I cannot spell. However, on this occasion, duckpond met duckspeak, and got managled in as I recall about the 35th dictionary.
Going down the other end, I spot some ducks. My running shoes are covered with mud. The dogs are running wild. I am trying to take photos. Obviously, I lack the adventure and the spirit of adventure for wildlife photography. Be that as it may.
Or to express it otherwise, this is not modern art, take from me those black spots are ducks.
Last go. Still no success. I will try again another day.

As I was reminded this week, when I was given a ride by a neighbour, who works there, many universities, including the University of Wollongong, have duck ponds.
