With one year anniversary of tragic Seattle Ride the Ducks crash approaching – this is probably bad timing on my part. In years past I’ve ridden Seattle Ducks twice and Memphis Ducks once.
DC Ducks are seen in 2 locations – last one is in front of Union Station.
A Nissan LEAF all electric taxicab makes another appearance. You see it on right of Duck Boat – then it’s on left. Interestingly enough I was so focused on the Duck I almost missed LEAF taxi.
Duck Tours in US are not run by same operator. Some cities are independent or run by regional company.
