So a duck walks into a bar...


Lucky Ducky

Yes, we really had a duck at the Moooo! Bar today! I'd say it just goes to show how popular the bar is becoming--we had some goats come last year! Hopefully this is a sign that a bovine stampede is coming soon :) Moooo!

Shiraishi Island, where all your ducky dreams come true.
