Ms. Ducky Goes to Normandy, France

Ms. Ducky, like many Americans, wanted to visit Normandy to see where many of our ancestors fought to help Europe end World War II.   She and her humans are taking the train to Normandy.

Ms. Ducky said this was a serious end to her European vacation.   She was glad to visit Normandy and see where freedom was won.   She really appreciates and thanks everyone for the effort and sacrifice.   Europe is now a wonderful place to visit and Ms. Ducky and her humans had a fabulous vacation.   Remember that Ms. Ducky is a very friendly duck.    She is bringing some European duck friends to Colorado.

Great Ms. Ducky.   We know we will like all your new friends.     She hopes you all visit Europe soon.   Ms. Ducky says she will visit Ireland soon.   Wow!   We want to hear about that trip, too.   Thank you, Ms. Ducky, for sharing your vacation with the Colorado Traveling Ducks.

From Monaco, Ms. Ducky heads to France.   She goes directly to the beach in Nice.

Very pretty, but a bit rocky.   Here she finds more new friends.

Always good to see so many ducky friends

A huge box of friends.    Time for a different type of fun.

Everyone loves a carousel.   And I, Ms. Ducky, ride again.

That was so much fun.   But it did make me a little hungry.   I see exactly what I want for a French breakfast.

That does look delicious, Ms. Ducky.   Ms. Ducky and her humans, want to see the Palace of Versailles.

Mom, can we live in this palace?   OK, I really do love living in Colorado anyway.   Now to the Eiffel Tower.   I was there.   I did go to the top.   But it is so big, when taking a photo of the entire Eiffel Tower, you cannot see me.   Here I am, looking down.

This is scary.   Remember, I am a little duck.   I am on a strut that support the Eiffel Tower.

This is great.   Well, this little Ms. Ducky thinks it is time to rest.   But I am not finished in Europe, so keep reading our blog to see where I visit next.
