There are Go Karts, a Maze, a Quiz, a Playground and a very good restaurant, which all makes for a very good day out.

  2. Wowsah! I think my heart would burst with joy if I ever saw so many swans in one place. I have never seen a swan in Maine.

  4. Fun! Aren’t the cygnets cute. And I thought swans got quite alarming if anyone looked at their young πŸ™‚

    • The Swannery has been there since the 1040s so I suppose these swans have always been used to people and they hatch with people just a few inches from them, it is all they know. Most of the nests had a male standing guard and looking threatening, one person got pecked cos he went too close, but so long as you keep about 2 feet away you are fine.
      Swans in the wild would be a very different matter I’m sure.

  5. This is what happens when I’m shunted off the desk top and have to resort to my tablet. Auto correct takes over and I ‘like’ my own comments. πŸ™„

  6. Well I expect you do. But do you all ‘live’ close-by too?

  7. You always seem to be out and about with your family at weekends. Do you all love close-by?
