Duck calls in the Night


Join me on the first Nighttime on Still Waters podcast. It is really a getting to know you podcast where I introduce you to the Erica 58ft narrowboat and this is the beginning of our audio journal about our life aboard and the changes and shifts we encounter following our move from land to water. These nighttime reflections draw upon our experiences and on life in general.
On thing I have noticed is how our nearby ducks call out to each other in the night and in this episode I explore that common need for, what Charlie Connolly describes as, 'voices flung out under the stars.'
