Chasing swans....

Okay, I have snapped out of it!(wienna, na only because of you), so what has been happening? Nothing much my friends, still on holiday, swimming, starring and just being useless. Yesterday, I fed a whole family of swans! Yep, it has taken me 5 years but I have finally done it!(you all know swans mate for life right?)Okay, here is the story of how I accomplished my mission...

1st year: First sighting of swans! Amazing, beautiful, ran down to sea shore to take pictures, was not fast enough, swans disappeared before I get there!

2nd year: Sighted swans from window and watched as they swam away.....did not even attempt to run down....

3rd year:This time, I made it down to sea shore, took pictures at a distance....

4th year: Ah! This time, I was prepared oh, had canoe ready, started chasing them but they were faster than my "rowing" ability, did not even manage to take pictures cos my hands were tied up.

5th year: Woke up to shouts of "waffy, your swans are here!", ran like a mad woman, grabbed a loaf of bread, practically "rolled" down to the sea shore.....ah.....and there they were....a complete family, pappa, mamma and 7 baby swans(sorry I lack the correct vocabulary, they should be chicks though since they all fall under "birds" but swans are just too beautiful......i like "baby swans"). Started feeding them, and lo and behold, they came nearer and nearer....Oh, what joy! after years of running and chasing, I finally get the perfect shots of my swans!My friends, I was smiling all day and I am still smiling!
