"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”

Waterfowl and Turtles

One of the delights of the resort we stayed in was all the duck, geese, and swans.

The girls named this one "Mrs. Ping". There was a full white duck that of course was "Ping". This was inspired by the delightful children's book "The Story of Ping".

Everytime we came out onto the deck, this duck was there. No doubt waiting for use to give some delectable morsel. However, we were hard hearted and followed the request of the resort to NOT feed them. The ducks expectations however, told us that most people do not heed the request.

There were also these sweet turtles.
