    So many ducks off the MVT, but sooo far away! This little guy, though, came in for a close-up!

    On February 25, 1970, "Rubber Duckie" premiered on Sesame Street when Ernie sang the song while taking a bath. Fun fact:
    "The segment was so popular that the song was issued as a single with the show's theme song as the flip side. In September, it peaked at #16 on the Hot 100, and on November 16, it once again appeared on Sesame Street, this time in a Season 2 segment again with Ernie performing the song."

    On your ride, capture a likeness of a duck, whether it be an actual duck, an image, or made of rubber. Caveat is that it can't be your own duck.

    Happy hunting!

    “Duck, Duck, Goose” bike racks at Lake House in Reston. The artist is Penny Hauffe.

    I went to a local kid’s store, DoddleHopper, in town and had no idea of how hard it was to find a duck! Tons of unicorns, Pokemon, fairies, insects, dragons, bunnies, horses, magic ponies ... animals of various sorts (including the seclusion owl !), but no ducks.

    Dejected, I was on my way out the door, and lo and behold, on the rack, there was the elusive ducky. Score!;-)

    This was an easy one for people who live/ride in Reston. But I had to be in Loudoun County today, not Reston, so I decided to look there. Thirty miles later I had seen deer, mockingbirds, cardinals, WAY too many Canada geese, and even a groundhog, but no ducks. So I finished my ride and came back to Reston to embark on a second ride. As Karen posted earlier, we have a piece of public art in Reston called "Duck, Duck, Goose" that are supposed to be functional art - artistic bike racks. I was part of the committee that commissioned these pieces and lesson learned -- ensure you write into the contract that the commissioning body has the authority to make the installers re-do it. The guy who installed it (not the artist) put it on a grassy area that gets muddy, pretty far away from the tennis courts or the lake house nearby, and set it up like a Mama being followed by her babies. So ... It's goose, duck, duck. And they won't change it. sigh

    I saw Karen riding away from it, so I knew it would be a duplicate, so I looked in Reston for other ducks as well. Sadly, ducks have fallen out of fashion. Probably due to Moby-Duck (story here: https://www.npr.org/2011/03/29/13492...re-lost-at-sea)

    I also wanted to add this...when I was a kid my dad was stationed in Japan. I spent 6-8th grade living on a base that did not have cable TV. The only TV we had in English was Sesame Street and Soul Train. When my mother was in the room, we watched Sesame Street to show what good caregivers we were with my younger brother. When she left, we switched over to the master, Don Cornelius, and danced. During this time, I learned EVERY Sesame Street song (and we even had the record albumn). So today, Ernie's "Rubber Ducky" song was my earworm, followed closely by Oscar the Grouch singing, "I Love Trash!" If we ever get a happy hour, I will be happy to sing both of these for those of you who missed this rich cultural experience.

    Calling to the ducks did not make them come closer. It didn’t help that there were other people trying to take pictures of the ducks. Photo taken on the MVT trail just south of the Washington Sailing Marina.

    Ducks, easy peezy so many lakes in Reston easy, easy, not. Each lake I went to was empty of ducks and geese and everything. I did find a white thing that may have been a duck, or may have been a seagull, but so far in the distance it would’ve been an undramatic picture. At lunch there was the suggestion that frying pan park had ducks. The quest for a two for a park and a pic was very intriguing so I went for it. Not only did I find a duck but a duck with a Roman bath.

    And. Just for clarification:
    "Duck is the common name for numerous species in the waterfowl family Anatidae which also includes swans and geese."

    And, on that note. There are geese up the wazoo where I ride. These were nice enough to be right along the side of the road, so it made for an easy picture.

    You missed the next sentence:
