Experiments gone wrong

In one of those amazing areas where a lake meets the ocean.


My oldest wanted to lay in the sand on a bustling beach, with music and noise and kids running around between towels on the ground.


my youngest and I plodded to the lake behind.


As a science experiment, with pieces of apple, that we had kindly, half chewed ourselves; we left a feast for this little lad.


Then we walked up the bank to do the same, with a group of ducks, who seemed happy to nibble our spat on bits.


A group of geese hovering around and then soaring over our heads. Noises of life filling a small marsh space on a beautiful lake.


When we ambled back, to check our results, not even a nibble of apple was gone.


Instead.


This face.


Reminiscent of my 13 year old.


Constant total disappointment in his lot, with his mother.


And a “I didn’t ask for a fucking apple did I?” face.


So no.


Frogs. Don’t. Eat. Apples.


As it turns out.
