Swan Update!

categories: Cocktail Hour


A week ago I posted about our backyard swans and their many weeks of nesting.  Well this Wednesday the eggs hatched and four cygnets waddled out.  They swam almost immediately. Yesterday, Hadley and I paddled out to say a cautious hello.  Here we are approaching…..

And here is the new family…..

    They’re a far cry from piloting those boats in Boston Gardens, but I sense great potential!

    There goes the neighborhood. What a spectacular back yard! That was a great day paddling back to your house from the ocean. This is the swan speaking, by the way.
