“We are the captains of our own ships sailing the sea of life, but in times of a stormy weather, you will discover true friends when they don’t hesitate to be a lighthouse.”

Reflections at the Marina. In less than a month, the marina will start filling up with boats. I can’t wait 🙂
Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.

Good morning folks and sorry I wasn’t around much yesterday…I had a very busy day but did take about 45 minutes to head down to the marina. And I’m so glad I did. One of the first things to catch my eye was this duck. Now, I see lots of ducks in my area but most are mallards or redheads. This one was totally new to me, so I snapped several pics.
When I got home, I did a quick search on google and believe this is an Ancona Duck which are normally found on farms. I’m not sure where he came from but he was with a bunch of female mallards and looked quite at home.
Here are a few more photos of the other sights I saw while there.

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”
