Old Duck On The Hill

This funny old duck belonged to some friends of mine who lived near Fish Creek.

Originally from France, they made several acres in South Gippsland their home almost 20 years ago and still kept many of their own traditions, like raising pidgeons, chickens, goats and ducks for food and milk, growing veges, making Camembert cheese and filling their own sausages. On the odd occasions they’d go away for an extended period of time, we really enjoyed looking after their animals while they were away.

In country areas, anything under 10 acres is considered a hobby farm, but to city folk, anything with a paddock, is a luxury ;-)
