The ducks already in the fountain.
Ten minutes before, a child who has been pre-selected joined the duck master to help him with the ceremony. And then, precisely at 11am, a voice boomed over the loud speaker, “Please turn your attention toward the elevator.” I couldn’t see through the people to the elevator. I tried peeking through legs to see when the ducks came off. I envisioned five ducks walking slowly and deliberately single file to the fountain. I couldn’t have been more wrong about how ducks walk a red carpet. They were huddled and racing toward the water. By the time I caught them out of the corner of my eye, my gaze still trying to figure out if the elevator had opened, they were in the fountain. I’d waited an hour and I’d missed the damn ducks.
I suspect the cuteness factor for ducks on a red carpet is high, but never having seen it, I can’t say for sure. What I can say, is that if you ever get a chance to stay at the Peabody, go. It’s a little more pricey than the other hotels around, but worth it and well located.
