I don’t know if I am just a creature of habit, a 1 trick pony or what? But, there are a few landmarks here on Long Island that I cannot ride by without stopping to take a photo.
While out for a ride to enjoy the unseasonably warm December weather, I stopped in some of my favorite spots on my way east. Again.
Exhibit A: The big black bull in Manorville.
I don’t mean to stop and peer over the fence to look at the giant metal bull, it just happens. There are usually a couple furry-legged horses there in the corral that look at me like I’m an idiot when I do.
“Oh, brother. There’s the lady again. I wonder if she knows that Angus isn’t real?”
Exhibit B: The Big Duck of Flanders
The duck has some kind of magnetic field that pulls me right in. It very well could be a tractor beam emitted from its red eyes.
It never changes. It’s the same duck it’s been since the first time I saw it and yet… can’t pass it by.
