Ducky and Pembleton are living in a mysterious and amazing place called Haifa, Israel. Every weekend they explore new places in the city. Last weekend, they explored the Haifa zoo and met lots of new friends. Today, Pembleton woke everyone up early and announced that he found an amazing place called the Bahai gardens, right here in Haifa. So they packed their backpacks with snacks and juice and took the bus downtown.

When they first got off the bus, Pembleton said, “that doesn’t look right. We were supposed to be in a different place.” Pembleton checked the map and couldn’t recognize any of the street names. He turned to the others and said, “I’m sorry guys. I think we are lost.”

Ducky turned to him and said, “Don’t worry Pembleton. I’ll ask someone for directions.” Once Ducky got directions from a local puppy, they discovered they were only one street over from the entrance to the Bahai gardens.

The gang spent all day exploring the incredible Bahai gardens, and when they were done, they finished the afternoon with lunch and an ice cream cone. Before heading home, they stopped back at the base of the gardens for a group photo. It was a pretty awesome day.

"Whoa! That's quite a view!"

Pembleton finally agreed to let Ducky strap on his skis and hop out into the water. Ducky is a very good swimmer. For some reason floating comes naturally to his round body. Ted and Blizzard hooked up the cord so that Ducky could hold on as the boat cruised through the water.

Shortly after Pembleton pushed the throttle forward a pod of dolphins joined Ducky as he road the waves. Ted and Blizzard were bouncing up and down waving to the dolphins. Then the dolphins started jumping out of the water and waving their flippers back at the little guys. One dolphin even did a flip out of the water.

When Ducky road over an especially large wave he sailed clear out of the water. The next time a wave came he headed straight for it on purpose. Ducky kept trying to go higher and higher until at one point a splashed out of control losing the cord attached to the boat. When Pembleton turned the boat around to check on him, Ducky came up spitting out water and laughing. The dolphins even helped Ducky get back on to the boat.

Next on their agenda, Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys needed to find a small island to have a picnic on.

Whaa Whoo! Faster! Faster!

Part 1 Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Ducky and the gang recently went on a Mediterranean Cruise off the coast of Haifa, Israel. They took Pembleton’s new boat, the “USS DtPb,” for a short cruise around Haifa bay.

There was a slight breeze and the sun kept them nice and warm. The weather was perfect for a day out at sea.

Ted and Blizzard had heard that a pod of dolphins often liked to play nearby. They hoped they would be able to see them and maybe even see them do a trick or two.

Ducky was excited, when Pembleton told him the water would be calm today, with the occasional wave. It was perfect for some tubing or water skiing. Shortly after leaving the harbor, Ducky asked, “Is it time to get out my water skis?”

"Full Steam Ahead!"

“Full Steam Ahead!”

Ducky and Pembleton have been very busy lately. After staying in New York for almost one month, it was time for them to complete the final stage of their move.

They packed up their clothes and toys into Pembleton’s plane and headed east. They flew over the Atlantic Ocean, the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum of Rome, Athens, and finally to Haifa, Israel.

It was a long trip. When they arrived, Ducky and Ted went to get some felafel for lunch, while Pembleton and Blizzard decided to have a salad with cucumbers and tomato.

So far, Ducky and the gang are enjoying their new home. The weather is nice and the food is great, but they are looking forward to meeting new friends and having many more exciting adventures.

(Sorry for the lack of posting, we are trying to be better! 2013 has been crazy so far. We should be settled in about a week!)

Shalom! We made it!
