I sometimes stop at this mere on my way home and just enjoy a few moments of quiet. It was such a lovely place to be today that I took some pictures of the swans on the water. Swans are pretty vicious animals, but there is something about the sight of the wildfowl on the water that makes me feel serene. I know a few friends who have special places that they need to go to from time to time, I don't know if everyone does! I always leave this spot feeling peaceful.
