Afloat with Anatidae

We went swimming this afternoon, which is one of the things I love Center Parcs for - warm pools of various kinds, both indoors and outdoors, no matter what time of the year. Two ducks had decided that one of the outdoor pools was a suitable pond for them to take a break in, and happily paddled back and forth. Pesky humans occasionally tried to shoo them out of the water, but they're a lot more mobile than we are, particularly in water, so this was amusing to watch than it was effective.

Last night we went for a walk around the lake, to the inn at one end of it (where we intend to eat tonight - we cooked steak the evening we arrived, went to Cafe Rouge the second night, and went to a spa yesterday, on a package which included dinner along with three hours of lounging in steam rooms and water beds). We watched people paddling back and forth in boats, and then the sun setting, while Julie drank hot chocolate and I had a rum and coke.

It's all rather relaxing.
