Monday, I went to the Arboretum with my friend, Arsen. He has a memborship and could bring a guest so we decided to check it out. The first thing we saw on the trail was the back of a peacock. The peacock kept turning around as if to show off his beautiful feathers so I jumped in and grabbed a picture.
There were a few peacocks on the trees and roaming around, and the peacock we first saw finally put his feathers down. I went up close to take a photo and he was not shy at all to have his photo taken.
There were a few greenhouses up ahead
We continued walking down the trails where there were acres of plants and came across a pond where there were a few ducks. As we got closer and looked into the water (which was quite dirty) we noticed a few turtle heads staring up at us. Later, those ducks that we thought were far away, started making their way towards us. They literally, climbed out the water, even a turtle and came straight for us. Like, that peacock they were not the least bit shy either! This was the weirdest creepiest thing I’d ever encountered with ducks and a turtle. lol. I then realized I had some crackers in my purse. They probably knew that or something the way they came after us. So I took it out and we started to feed them but tried to aim it away from us so they’d go away.
Random pictures throughout the arboretum
On our way out, we decided to pass by that pond again. I guess, our curiousity got the best of us, cause we had never seen something like that before. When we got there, the ducks were no where to be found and as we kept looking in the water we noticed a few turtles sticking their heads up just looking at us. Then yet again, they came climbing up the side toward us. So weird.
On Tuesday, my mom had doctors appointments all day from 6a-5p so that took up most of my day then I went to GEP to play. Got home around 11:30p and went straight to bed. I was so tired.
