The Rubber Ducky Project: 2013

The Rubber Ducky Project: 2013

At the beginning of 2013, I made a resolution to post a weekly photograph of a rubber duck. Because my daughter loves rubber duckies so much, my goal was to post a picture a week of one of her rubber ducks. I am pleased to announce that I succeeded in my goal. Her ducks showed up in some pretty unusual places over the past year. Because I had so much fun this year, one my goals for the coming year is to continue with the Rubber Ducky Project. In the meanwhile, check out the travels of the rubber ducky over the past year!
