Looking Down in Seattle
I love your wandering and discovery of odd objects. Here is one of my finds a few years ago when I was following the Duwamish along the west bank.
Maybe you will find something new about it. However, it is intriguing.
Fun story! I've always enjoyed coming across the few I've seen (but have never seen the referenced duck or its tracks!!)....
I did notice, however, you include the following sentence at the beginning of your story, but then proceed to use "manhole cover" elsewhere throughout: "Since personhole cover is a disgusting term and manhole a problematic term, hatch cover or utility cover are the preferred names."
OK, I have a outing...I have seen the duck tracks but not the terra cotta duck!
OK, where can we find this hefty duck and its tracks?
