Day 41 - Ducks
I enjoyed walking around Lake Arlington today on this unusually warm February day. The ice on the lake melted just enough to give these ducks a chance to enjoy a swim. The lake is man-made and was dug about 10 years ago as a flood retention project. It is now managed by our park district and has many recreational amenities. The walking path is about 2 miles around the lake. The wind was blowing pretty hard from the southwest as you can see by the flag pole at the lake.
