Finally I was almost blinded by the sun. It hung around most of the morning yesterday and then in the afternoon it disappeared again.
We ran errand in town and then drove out to the point as our reward!
The Fish Hook River is open and the Swans and Ducks have sought refuge there. There used to be an elderly man who fed them. I am not so sure that is happening…I will have to ask my cousin Chuck he will know.
Mallard Ducks, that is a male with the pretty head and the female wears her brown dress accented with a few beautiful violet feathers on her side. (Very technical term! )
Here is a better photograph of those violet colored feathers.
Chance was a really good boy. He rolled down his window and stuck half his body out but didn’t growl or bark…he just watched.
Young Swans still a dirty white color but some of their new feathers are snowy white.

We watched for quite some time…beside laundry, cleaning house and running errands it was the highlight of our day.
