A Walk Along the Canal

We went downtown and walked along the canal a few days ago, thinking maybe we'd feed the ducks. Eventually the ducks came out and we were able to toss a few bread crumbs at them, but they were not really all that interested.

Interestingly enough, we came across a group of people walking (or trying to walk :) on a slackline. A slackline is basically a tightrope that is tied between two trees. Soon, someone came up with the idea to tie it across the canal over the water. I watched this eagerly, as I had observed that they didn't seem to be able to walk more than a few feet on dry land. It took forever it seemed, to get it tied up properly, and then the fun began. Finally one of the guys managed to walk all the way across the water without falling in. He did a great job keeping his balance.
