well apparently one of the baby ducks gets stolen occasionally but it is always returned back to it's spot without anyone noticing after about a week of its disappearance. You should check it out sometime if you ever get a chance to visit Boston :)

my best guess is that you live in cali (just because of the time difference - seems to be that whenever I'm on this late, I always end up talking to people in Cali or Australia haha) in which case you can take a train but that would take forever to get you across the country XD Its ok, one day you'll road trip it :D

Ohh cool!! Yeaa I'm living here in Boston this year for school, but I'm usually a Maine resident. It's a lot different living in a big city as opposed to small town Maine. I actually don't live too far away from the commons where these ducklings are :)

Thats amazing.I love to travel. Boston is probably one of my favourites. Wow, Maine. Big difference from the city. How are you liking it?

I'm liking it, although I miss the country life, the sense of community and the people, the slower life, the dark skies at night time, the sound of crickets, hooting of owls, the trees rustling, driving without traffic...yeaa the city has some benefits, but I still like home better :)
