My kids would absolutely love to ride in these! I have fond memories of the paddle boats in Golden Gate Park, but these are much more attractive!

Hi, what a gorgeous swan ride. Can you believe there are no swans in Costa Rica. Really, I've never seen a real one here, just a bunch of angry geese:)

Photo Friday - Volcanoes and Hanging Bridges!

Don't forget to join us for an International Happy Hour!

what fun!! i like these swans better!


Funny story about the mute swans. Ya can't get more mute than these, eh?


Yep, these were so cute I made photowanderer stop the car and turn around so I could take the snaps. The photos aren't art, but the little boats were pretty unique, so I wanted to share.

Marina-We've got plenty of geese and mute swans around here...and I think the swans may be the more cantankerous of the two :)

Jessie-I couldn't resist turning around to get these photos. It looked like a lot of fun!

Wanderluster-Yup, these were pretty well behaved swans! We always laugh about the "outdoor writers" who didn't know enough not to feed the swans.

Oh, thanks for posting this link! What a great story... so glad you made it out alive! LOL


Angela-I had to tell the story once I took these photos and decided to use them for a Photo Friday :)
You notice we weren't fool enough to go out and feed the swans, and our cabin was up the hill a little way from the swan action at the supposed outdoor writers' cabin. We didn't think too much of their outdoor "expertise"! :lol:
