~The Little Ducklings Go To a Nature Reserve: Part Two~

In the last story, we looked at all the animals of the Nature Reserve, 

this story we will be seeing the farmyard and meet the Three Ladies of the Farmyard.

The Beautiful House stood like a gentle reminder of auld lang syne.. a beacon of remembrance it withstood countless generations of pioneers and farmers, the men, women, and children who forged and formed our nation.
There were Old Tools, used for pressing syrup.
And Old Tools for boiling syrup. 
And Old Tools used for grinding sugar cane to make the syrup.
And many other Old Tools with other uses.
Farm Uses.
Barn Uses,
and Travel Uses

And like a strong rock, these Three Ladies stood stubbornly and strong.
Watching over the farmyard.
Standing strong in the midst of storm.

There was the Old Barn

Complete with Illustrious Pigeons

And a General Store

And a Blacksmith's Shop

Where the Duckling Family Rested; all but Papa Duck, who can be seen looking into the Chicken Pen in the background.

And an Outhouse
Complete with the crescent moon on the door....

...and someone inside using it...
"A little privacy please?"

It was a busy Sunday Afternoon, but a very exciting one. All the Duckling Family were worn out from walking, hungry, and tired, but they were glad they went, for memories made that day were not soon forgotten.

The End.

~The Little Ducklings Go To a Nature Reserve: Part One~

This past weekend, Papa Duck, Mama Duck, and all the Little Ducklings were invited by Brother and Sister-in-law Duck to accompany them on a walk through a nature reserve.
So, they packed up some water and snacks for the littlest ones, put on their walking shoes, and drove to the Nature Reserve.

It was late afternoon when they arrived, and all the animals were settling down for the evening ahead. 

Sister Barred Owl, and her two brothers were patiently

..for night to fall, for they need the cover of darkness to hunt.

....he didn't like the attention
Mr. Eagle was having his dinner...

Mr. Bobcat was looking for the perfect place to watch the night critters go by.

The Deer family...
....were resting after a busy day of grazing.

Old Man Bison was catching the last of the warm Sun rays.

And the Turkeys were giving out the last gossip of the day.

Skunk was fast asleep, getting a good day's rest
before waking up to a night of busyness 

..all who passed her domain
Mrs. Owl was silently watching...

Sly Fox was catching a few winks, so she would be well
 rested for another early morning hunt.

And the Trio of Coon's...
..were cuddling together, or sunbathing in the last few rays.

Grandfather Owl was keeping watch over all who entered...
Making sure the younger animals were behaving themselves...

So that none could say his Nature Reserve was of bad reputation.

And Beaver was eating his Sunday feast of fruits and vegetables.

End Of Part One.

Please join us next time to see..
