Sequim ducks are gathering in local ponds, like this pond that extends and runs across my own property. I love the sound of ducks and geese flying overhead, and we’ve certainly had a lot of them this year, far more in my personal observation than normal. I don’t know that that means, if anything. I thought you might enjoy this short video of Sequim ducks.
Seeing and hearing all these ducks and geese reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in remote Alaska, and we lived off the land. We had a 900 square foot cabin, no electricity, no running water, an outhouse, and a Coleman lantern hanging from the ceiling. We had a homemade wood stove my father welded together from a 55-gallon barrel. It was a great way to grow up as a boy, although my sisters didn’t like that cold toilet seat when it was 50 below. I miss the hunting and fishing, especially Dahl Sheep hunting in the mountains of the Alaska range.
By the way, I wrote a book about growing up in Alaska and the dangerous and wild things that happened in remote Alaska. You might enjoy that book. It’s available on Amazon at Teachings of The Wilderness: The Amazing Wealth of My Life in Poverty.
