First ship

I was surprised today to see one of the big ore ships coming down the channel this afternoon. I didn't have a decent lens handy (or a decent camera for that matter) so I grabbed my binocs and my trusty Canon point and shoot and did a poor man's telephoto.

In the foreground you'll notice the ducks in an open pool of water. All day long there were thousands - dare I say tens of thousands of ducks in all the open pools as far as the eye could see. Diving, quacking and generally seeming to have a good time all around in the sunshine.
