A mute swan family at Chew Valley Lake, near Bristol, Somerset, UK.
By the way....Bristol has just been voted the best City in England to live in! A major factor in the award was it's closeness to the coast and the beautiful Somerset countryside! In general, Bristolians are happier than any other City dweller in England!
Personally, i could never live in the City, not even Bristol...... i like my huge open spaces, the wind in the trees, freedom from the sounds of cars and lorries and thousands of people....the only sounds being those supplied by Mother Nature herself.....i like the endless dramatic skies that go on for miles.... i love living in the countryside, i could think of no better place than Somerset for that..... i'm so lucky... :-)
