Hundreds of ducks! Only not so much ...

A tradition in Kurt's family is feed the ducks on the Michigan State campus. Apparently, dozens of ducks gather near a landing by the river, and many get close enough to be handfed (the hundreds was hyperbole - yes, I am gullible). While there were only twelve ducks total, it was still fun to feed them and to enjoy an afternoon on the parklike campus.

If you visit, stop at the Dairy Bar for some excellent ice cream made right on campus. They have flavors for many of the Big Ten teams, so of course I had to represent and order the Hoosier Strawberry along with a dip of lemon custard. Those with kids will enjoy the children's garden. It's bright and interactive with lots to explore, including a wee labyrinth and musical tiles.

I'm still wondering where all the ducks went ...

They probably saw you coming and one of them yelled ... "Duck!"

Okay, that wasn't so clever, I know.
