More Norfolk Views

We’ve been enjoying Florentijn Hofman's Rubber Duck at the Chrysler Museum. It was a Major Social Event™. There were crowds in front of the museum for the duck’s entire residence. Hofman created a really fun sculpture, and I’m glad the Chrysler could host it.

Of course, when it’s time to move on, there’s not much left but a lot of deflated PVC (or Hypalon or whatever the duck is made from.) 

Sort of reminds us of Scout. Deflated.

Sigh.

We’re waiting for a status report from the dinghy doctor. We’re aware that it takes time to carefully remove the old adhesive we applied and replace it with new adhesive. We’re aware that we just passed through a big three-day weekend where inflatable sales and rentals are more important than repairs.

So, we’re stuck to the dock at Waterside. It’s not a bad place to be stuck.  But, multiple weeks of dockage are not really compatible with our cruising budget. Our preference is to be anchored in the cheap seats.

Meanwhile, CA reports the goslings living in The Hague are cute.  Until they grow up to be full-sized Goose Poop Machines.

Geese and Pelicans have a kind of “we’re watching you, human” attitude that’s a bit reptilian and unnerving.  But when they’re small, they're cute.
