Swans Swimming

There is both a pond and a large bay near our cottage. The swans are on the pond all summer. In winter, they go to the bay where there's a patch of unfrozen water.

I was taken aback to see the swans in the pond this week. Well, not in the pond. On the pond. See what I mean?

I've never been so close to them and let me tell ya, those birds are huge

Today on my walk, I saw them swimming in the bay, where there is very little ice yet. This is good for the swans and ducks. Not so good for the folks who want to set up ice fishing huts.

Wonder what else I'll see this week?
