our first real day of rain this year. it smelled _awesome_ and I loved riding in the rain. I got a little wet. Well, soaked to the bones. But it was fun. Kinda wishing the loaner bike had fenders…

ducks have returned to the pond near campus. they returned before the snow melted, but the ice kept them from being very happy about it, until now…
one of the ducks coming to check me out as I ditch a jacket on the ride to campus. won’t be long before they all head south.
hungry ducks coming to check me out while I pause by the pond to shed some rain gear before getting to campus.
Maligne Lake is home to Spirit Island, one of the most iconic spots in the Rockies. We didn’t pay the money to get shuttled out there with the rest of the tourists to line up to take our copy of the photo, but did enjoy a visit to the lake.
I went with Evan to his swimming lesson this morning, at the outdoor pool near his school. Not a great morning to be in an outdoor pool, but he had a blast swimming with his friend.
we went out to Ghost Lake with some friends, who were dropping a bike off for tomorrow’s Ironman race.
a family of ducks swims in the pond in the University of Calgary Research Park. The baby ducks are not very old, but are growing very quickly.
a fresh batch of baby duckies is taking to the pond near campus. as I approached to take some photos, I was surprised to be warned off by one of the geese – I thought the mama duck might be upset, but a goose?
