The Dog and Swan
Kensington Gardens, Serpentine Lake and Fauna
15 pics. – Just behind the Albert Memorial is a very nice outdoor cafe and one of the entrances to Kensington Gardens. To the left and a little further north there is Kensington Palace and to the right is the Serpentine Lake with Hyde park on the other side. You might also like Squirrels up my Leg.
At the cafe
“I don’t know what it is, but I shall defend it to my last breath, or teatime.”
On the Serpentine
First a word from our sponsor.
“No brain cells were harmed during the making of the this travesty but we can’t guarantee the same whilst reading it, and have you got any cake. “
“I say, they’ve got tea and buns”
“Do I look like I’ve got a bun”
“What do think of my new paint job and have a got any panini.”
Signor briefly broke of the session to give a small dog a thorough hissing and then returned to a perfect composure. What it must be to live in the moment.
Signora and Cygnet
“Don’t look Nigel, Ma’s gone all tipsy again”. “Oh look a shiny thing”
“That Odette, what a diva. Not like me I’m so demure, and modest with it.”
“Me, I’m firm but fair and proof against meteorites.”
“Pay attention class while Mr Flogget demonstrates how we do walking”. “I’ll confiscate that in a minute”
The Flying School
“Ok, now choose a nice soft landing ground, lower landing gear, throttle back and full flaps – tee hee I’m so funny.”
“Alright not bad, now get off that swan. These kids, honestly what can you do !”
Never had a lesson in my life. Wheeeeeeee”
The Preening Salon
“Well of course he got his bill stuck in the mud. I told him, I said if we were meant to do that, we would have been born with propellers. “
The Last Word
“It’s like living in a madhouse around here. Why can’t they be more normal like what I am. “
Goose Feathers !

“Alright, who threw the gravy”.
“Did he say the G word”. “Yep” . “Disgraceful, I’ll have his feathers off”. “Don’t mind him, that’s Arthur, he’s such a wag”. “Honk”
Not so much wildfowl as slightly miffed.
