The Adventures of Erwin the Duck

Erwin the duck was named by his Father, What the Duck, after Erwin Schrodinger who he hopes likes ducks a lot more than cats. Erwin was raised to live his life free as a bird and to have adventures whenever he has the opportunity.

With a little help from his friend John, Erwin's adventures will be documented in these pages.

We went to the Whenham Council on Aging Kite Day.

I had fun.

The Hammonasset Festival is one we always try to make it to. The Park is quite a long flight from home for a little duck like me but John and his wife, Lisa can camp in the campground right next to the kite field.
Lisa holds my line.
Lots of friends in the sky with me.

Erwin went to the 139th Annual Kites Over New England Vernal Equinox and Saint Patric's Day Kite Fly on Saturday.
The First day of Spring was spectacular at the beach.

Erwin finnally got out of the truck today. This is the cold, empty playground at Devereaux Beach in Marblehead.
It was nice to be out again.

Erwin spent some time at the Ferry Beach Camp and Conference Center in Saco, ME with John and the folks from the UU Church of Marblehead.
It was a wonderful weekend in a little corner of Heaven.

Erwin and a bunch of his friends went to the Crotched Mountain School to have fun during their "Family Day". There were lots of smiles.
This keeps getting better every year.

It's been a while but Erwin finnally got out to play at the East Meets West Festival at Pope John Paul II park in Dorchester, MA.
Tomy Chung throws this great party every year to bring people from China and the US together to share culture and kites.

Erwin found a great beach to fly from on the island (N42.26774 W70.92049). The beach is made up of mostly crushed shells.

Erwin made a new friend on Grape Island. His name is Mike and he is a kind and generous soul.
