  6. what a great place to relax, warm up and bob up and down on the little waves. Looks really comfortable. Perhaps we should design a water lily chair for humans?

  9. Hello Roy!
    What a lovely little family!
    Although they are quite common here, taking pictures of them is not easy, they are quite shy!
