This summer was a lot of fun, and one of the things that I got to do was go to a festival that had a giant rubber duck on display. Seriously. It’s pointless and amazing. Despite all the controversy of whether or not we really need a $200,000 duck floating across the Canadian lakes this summer, they did it anyway, and I am so happy they did. I mean, look at this thing:
The duck is six stories tall and weighs over 13,600 kilograms. The duck also has a quaking noise played on repeat to give it a more lifelike essence. This duck has probably traveled more than you have. It’s gone all over the world, adorning bodies of water to its humbled onlookers. And yes, Jacob and I were there to bask in all of its glory.
So, what do you think? Giant rubber duck: Yay or Nay?
I personally love the idea. It’s random, weird, and adorable. I loved meeting the giant rubber duck this summer! xoxo
This is very late because the fireworks were in June. But I remembered that last year I made a post about them, and how can you not? Fireworks are awesome, they’re definitely worth posting about. This year, it was raining the day of and many thought they’d have to postpone it. Luckily, the rain stopped just hours before, but they had to make it at nine instead of ten. Therefore it was still pretty light outside which took away the dramatic effect, but the fireworks were still awesome nonetheless. Yes, they still had cool shapes this year, like smiley faces and hearts. And yes, the ending was actually better than the other years. It sounded like a million gunshots going off at once for at least a minute, it was pretty intense. The people made me think of myself as a young child, covering my ears to protect them from the loud noise. Hey, it was pretty loud.
Then a couple of days later, we went back downtown to go to the carnival. I actually forced myself to go on a big ride (after hours of debating). It was very fun. Fun rides, good company, nice scenery, and tasty food (and the best cherry lemonade you’ll ever have).
Summer is really fun so far! My boyfriend and I are extremely excited to go to Florida in August. Maybe some of you know why. 😉
I hope you’re all having a great summer so far! Stay safe and have fun! xx
