Howe do you do... duck racing?

Today is World Rubber Ducky Day and what better excuse to get down to our local stream for a duck race. We wrapped up warm as the weather was bright but frosty, got our wellies on and made haste to the forest (Delamere - Manley Side near the Cycle Skills Area, for locals).

There was ice-puddle-smashing and fighting talk on the way; 
Rainbow Duck was the favourite to win. 

But besides a heart-stopping moment when we lost yellow duck down a pipe, 
he was the stand-alone winner. 
We would have made a mini gold medal and podium but we were all freezing.

Good fun, any day of the year...but it has left me wondering, 
why do my most inspired ideas always involve ducks?
