Just Ducky
12-OCT-2013 Vern Rogers (fotabug fotos)

Just Ducky

Today was the day for the annual Rotary Duck Race at Alton Baker Park. Donors are encouraged to buy a little rubber duck, which is then included in a race from the Frohnmayer Pedestrian and Bike Bridge down the Willamette River to DeFazio Pedestrian and Bike Bridge. The winner would get a new Chevrolet pickup. Here you see a real live rubber ducky, well ok, she was just ducky then. The race supports programs that benefit local children.

Nice capture of this character, Vern. Thanks for the BG info. I assume you didn't win the derby because you didn't mention any new truck. ;-)

I don't think that Duck would do well in the water. ;-)

Webbed Nikes?
Steve Thuman13-Oct-2013 14:55
Big kids with Nikons that is.
Steve Thuman13-Oct-2013 14:54
I hope she didn't try to race! That costume would soak the river dry and she'd sink quick. I bet she was a big hit with the kids though, especially the bik kids with Nikons
