    On my second day in Ireland, I visited a small town. Alongside the small river running through it were two girls and their grandfather whom were selling rubber ducks that you could enter in a race. It was really fun to watch.

    Funny, isn't it.

    There are annual duck races in the bigger town here, too, all for charity.

    Oh, I've seen these as well - but this one the duck you entered in the race had to be one you'd made yourself :)
    Good close up photo, and I like how they're all lying on their side in the water in the second :D
