On a visit to Conejo Creek Park in Thousand Oaks (one of our favorite local parks, next to the Thousand Oaks Library, Senior Center and Teen Center), a family was feeding the ducks. The sheer number of voracious ducks was both amusing and startling! But we survived.
This reminded me of a previous experience observing Turtles Going Wild at the beautiful Alice Keck Memorial Gardens in Santa Barbara.
And of course the turtles remind me of koi ponds, one of which is this koi pond at Simi Valley Town Center. These koi aren't quite as animated as the ducks and turtles, but fun to watch nonetheless. Click here for other koi ponds around Ventura County.
