3 June 2015: Last year we had a bit of fun posting about the "Rubber Ducky" bathtub toy of gigantic proportions that had been on a world tour - turning up in distant harbors both overseas and in the United States. Then it seemed to have simply disappeared. Well, guess what! The Rubber Ducky is back!

This is the fellow we"re talking about here - in case you forgot. 

So, the word is, he will be making a guest appearance in Camden/Philadelphia later this month when l'Hermione and the tall ships are in port.
l'Hermione Revolutionary War French Frigate

The event in Philadelphia/Camden is expected to be the largest Tall Ships event of the year, country-wide and opens 25th June on the Deleware River. 

The Duck is inflatable and is 60' tall, part of an art "installation" by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. He's (the Duck) has been touring the world since 2007 and has appeared in Hong Kong, Sydney, Sao Paulo, and Los Angeles among other places. 

It sounds like it's going to be a fun weekend on the Delaware River. 

Until next time,
