Lovely pic. Walked to here yesterday.

I rode my bike to here yesterday as well.
You would think with it being called the Swan pond that it would have some Swans on it.
There are plenty of Swans at the three sister so you would think somebody like Graham Workman ( Wigan Mr Wildlife) would transfer some

Chilly Autumn breezes shift and stir
Remnants of Summer's parting gift,
Leaves doused with brilliance beyond compare,
A carpet of gold,red and amber of Nature's pattern rare.

It must have been a lovely day to produce such a lovely picture.
Mick, is Graham Workman still the ranger. I remember the family going to see him when he arrived, I expected a baby and was most surprised when he wasn't.

a very peaceful scene, I like this a lot Harry.

The pond is so called as Swan Freshwater Mussels were kept in there, the Laird and his family would have feasted on them after some poor Serf had waded into the frozen pond with bare feet.

Anne as far as I know he is, I know what you mean with him not being a baby, I think he once told me he was a twin.
