On the evening that we arrived, we decided to go down to the boat so Rusty could get some fishing in and we could take a little cruise around the lake. While Rusty was fishing off the boat in the slip, a little baby duck was making his way toward us making a little, distressed duck noise. I was so sad because I didn't see a mommy anywhere.
Thankfully, I had taken some corn chips down to snack on because when he came over toward us I crumbled some chips in the water for him. The only problem was that he didn't know how to eat them. So then, I tried throwing him a dead minnow but poor little guy didn't know how to eat that either. I was getting a little scared for the little guy because I didn't know what baby ducks eat and I didn't see any mom.
Well, Rusty saw a big duck land over across the shore and sure enough she started making her duck noises. That little baby duck practically ran across the water and we was talking up a storm to her. It was such a sweet moment. Yes, I cried a little... don't give me a hard time, I'm pregnant!
