Down to the lake we go. Kevin and the boys swim while Mide and I scout along the lake-shore looking for water birds. He doesn't swim yet so we paddled and he poured water from the bucket endlessly filling and emptying it. I am hoping that bit by bit we will encourage him to enjoy the water. We are lucky, it's early yet and so no-one else is here. Only the swans and dragon flies and whatever swims beneath share in our adventures.
