at our favourite park on
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday we went to our favourite park to feed the birds.
One day it was just ducks, and we enjoyed having time with them, because
usually other birds make sure they take priority. Friday and Saturday the
swans we love came in from the middle of Lake Ontario, and yesterday
it was lucky we had two loaves of good bread. All of the birds were very
hungry and there were a lot of them.
The queens's swan marker has made it clear that feeding swans and "waterfowl"
bread is fine. Yesterday the birds were really hungry It's cold, and there
was a crust of ice on the beach near the shore. With the windchill it was -7 Celsius --
cold. One of the swans was nipping at my arm, and my coat because
I wasn't getting the bread out of the cloth bag we carry it in fast enough.
What a delight to be by the deep blue of the lake, with the wind creating
dramatic waves, and our bird friends having what amounted to
their dinner. When they were full the swans lay down on the beach.
As if to say, "there now. Time for bed." We drove off into a brilliant
sunset, and were as happy as could be.
Have a loving your life day.
