Roath Park Lake

Clock Tower

We decided to take advantage of both the good weather and the fact that GG and the kids are home, and went for a walk to Roath Park. There was a good brisk wind, which blew away the cobwebs, and I took a few pictures which I thought I’d share with you.

swans and reflections

There were loads of swans on the lake today, and we stopped and had a good long look at them all. The two above really looked as if they were admiring their reflections in the still water!

While I was watching them, another swan got curious about this person with a metal thing attached to her eye, and came up close for an inspection;

He’d just been ducking his head beneath the water to look for food, hence the droplets of water on his head. Beautiful!
