That is me on the beach (with a few friends) trying to make friends with the local fauna.
We had great weather while in the Scotland...mostly. The snow started right after we left. But as you can see here it was bright and sunny on the beach in West Kilbride. There was even a mute swan floating out on the ocean.
I did not see another swan in sight....and since this is a mute swan and they mate for life, I am hoping his partner is just resting on the beach somewhere and he is not out there all alone :(
