ABC WEDNESDAY-"Z" is for "zany"

Ride The Duck! That's something I always wanted to do, and recently my daughter and son-in-law treated me to a zany tour of Seattle on this amphibious vehicle. We had the time of our lives, guided through Seattle's neighborhoods and over Lake Union by Captain Tristan Shout..... (Shake it up, baby!)

If you ever have a chance to ride a Duck (there are many cities that offer these tours), please, please go! You'll love it. And buy a 'quacker', too, and toot (quack) as you wave to passers-by.

See other Z's at Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

I see Aussies have them so why not we kiwis too;)

I'm hoping to get down to Seattle this summer and will look up this duck of which you speak. Did you visit the Underground City?

This captain just passed away a few days ago, thanks for the great picture and story about him. He was a great guy.

Dear Anonymous and other readers,

I was so, so sorry to hear this. I will always remember his Duck tour; what a nice guy he was.
