I was quite excited to find this flock of swans grazing on the lawn. I decided to sneak up on them to get a better shot.


  1. I remember these swans. You don't often find black ones on this side of the continent.

  2. Lucky you. Haven't seen black swans in ages.

  3. You be careful of those swans - one attacked us in our car once. It came up to the window (when we were parked by Lake Wendouree in Ballarat) and stuck its head in and tried to bite Vince!

  4. I love it when swans/geese try to outrun people. They are so ungainly. But on water ...

  5. Hey I've never thought of angry swans, they seem so serene. These were more of the ungainly waddle away variety.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
