Summer weather has descended on us. It is hot and humid.
I went to the gym today, which tired me out.
Then I went to a patio for a long cooling beer, which tired me out even more.
But before I got too tired, I went down to the waterfront to watch the sailboats and the swans.
No one invited me onto their boat, so I sat down on a bench and watched the swans preening.
They seem such a happy couple.
and no wonder: look closely at that soft rock. it seems to be unfurling and waking up
this is poignant as poor Mama has been nesting at the same spot for many years, but it has been at least five years or more since any of her eggs have hatched.
her nest is only about 3 metres from the walkway and is easily accessible
ahhh, look, now we are all preening
swimming is much easier than walking
and it is much cooler in here
So I have 259 more photos.
Actually, it is kind of neat - reminds me of those old flip books with animation. I keep looking at them and speeding up the slideshow, but I may actually print them off and make my own mini movie book.
