Day 147

It was a beautiful morning today, I was up and out early heading to Montezuma, it was so beautiful out that I saw a family out for it's morning walk. A family of trumpeter swans! I didn't think they nested around here but I guess I was wrong, and so glad I was. There was a mom and a dad and five cygnets just walking along not a care in the world, as usual the mom led the way, the kids following and the dad bringing up the rear. It was funny, I don't think the kids wanted to keep walking because every time the parents stopped for even a second the little ones would sit down, right there in the middle of the road, it was a riot. I watched them for a long time, staying out of their way, wondering where they were going and why they were walking on the road instead of the grass or even swimming in the water, but they seemed to have a purpose known only to them. I was so glad I got up early and was able to see this young family out and about, it's one for the life list.
