Welcome back, Karen!! Sounds like you had a great trip with lots of ducky finds!
> Many thanks to those who emailed/posted hints on where to look. I found some ducks that have been on my "list" for quite a while!
> The one I wanted most was a giant duck, found it at a toy shop in Colonial Wiliiamsburg. I guess it must be a very old duck! We had a lot of fun with it, taking it along to places and photographing it here and there. At one point, my partner David put the duck on a rock on a beach but a big wave came along and washed it away. David who hates water and can't swim went in after the duck and rescued him! He's definitely my hero now. Although he always has been, partly due to his support of the duck hunt.
> Thanks to Susie's post about Babies r us, I found the FP swim n kiss ducks and Sassy double ducks.
> Other finds were the orange Walmart duck. I had the other colors, including marigold but not orange. So now I have all 8 colors.
> I saw Bed Bath and Beyond stores but didn't think to look there for ducks, duhhhh! Oh well, fodder for the next trip - bath stores.
> Thanks to all, and happy hunting. Garage sale season is just starting here in the north country and you all know what that means!
