And then on the way home from the beach we encountered the swans on the boating lake.

mysocalledmoblog, they do have a coy look about them, don't they? I think he was just checking if I had any food, though...

By the way, I don't know why there's a green streak in the sky in the first and last photos.

Them's purdy. :)

Your green streak's a "rayon vert" - an atmospheric effect sometimes visible at sunset. By the sea is the best place to get a chance of seeing one, so keep an eye out for more, you lucky dogwalker. Do recommend the Eric Rohmer film, le Rayon Vert if you have any stomach for french cinéastes.

If you want to read up on the layered atmosphere, Descartes' law of refraction & sundry other explanatory details, you'll find plenty in english under "green flash" or "green ray".
