Swan Power

Redwood Shores and Foster City have a wonderful tradition of residents owning electric-powered flat-bottom boats and cruising around the lagoons. The other day, my friend Martha invited me and some others to float in her boat and cool down in this hot weather.

While cruising and talking and eating, we encountered this swan. Looks can be deceiving. You look at this swan and you think "Oh, how beautiful" and it is, but those feathers are fluffed up because it was chasing geese off of its territory. Swans are extremely fast swimmers. The geese had to fly and get on the bank to get away.

We are so blessed to be in such a beautiful area with such lovely traditions. What do you love about where you live?
