Hawksbill Creek Random-osity

The Good: The town of Luray has preserved Hawksbill Creek as an asset rather than piping it underground. A walking trail and several parks make it a recreation spot as well as a place of beauty.

The Random: Mallard ducks enjoy the creek.

 (The ducks give me an excuse to share this post with Wild Bird Wednesday as well as Wednesday Waters. I'm also linking to Cathy's blog hop, Jesh's Seasons,  as well as The Good, The Random, and the Fun.)

The Fun: Our weather has been unusually warm for February and this brought hundreds of people outside to enjoy parks like this on Presidents Day. Here we see families having a pleasant time on the Hawksbill Greenway.
