A little over a week ago I was hanging out at the Charles River shore on the Boston side during a particularly nice and sunny day. While chilling underneath a tree taking in the great view I noticed a few ducks also just chilling a few feet in front of me.
After taking a few photos of these ducks relaxing the day away I glanced across the water to spot a group of ducks with a child’s motorized boat following them!
The little boy and his boat weren’t satisfied with scaring just one group of ducks away. Nay, the little boy in fact ran up and down the shore until a huge group of ducks escaped into the safety of the water.
At this point the little boy was overwhelmed with joy by his duck terrorizing actions. His joy and awe of the situation lasted for about 20 seconds, at which point he began fiddling with his motorized boat again.
Luckily for the ducks, the little motorized boat only had so much range and so much speed and the ducks made a great escape across the water to true safety.

Kids are cruel. Was I the only good child in the world?
Haha…guess so Stefanie. I wasn’t cruel but I wasn’t overtly good or nice either. 😉
To the little boy’s credit, he didn’t hit or hurt any of the ducks, at least not physically. Do ducks dream? If so, hopefully none of them wake up in the middle of the night fearing a little yellow plastic boat attacking them.
