Continuing from yesterday's post, taken two weeks ago at Oxford Island Lough Neagh. These maturing young swans were so graceful and elegant.
This is the hide at Oxford Island, but was not opened the day we visited.
Many commented on yesterday's photo of the stainless steel waves on the shore and I cannot find any other info but they are not perhaps as dangerous as they seem as the edges are not sharp at all.
This is my daughter investigating them...
Thanks for stopping by!

I've been trying to photograph the new lambs near us but they've always been too far away.
Yesterday on our walk, we were able to watch them frolic through the fence, though they did spy us!
I love how patient this mother ewe is as her boisterous offspring and friends climb all over her!

Situated along the northern part of Strangford Lough Newtownards, this was a barley malting set up, supplying breweries, including Guinness.
Newly married couple were having photos taken there! This was the wedding limousine.

Scrabo Tower sits proudly on a rocky hill overlooking Strangford Lough and the town of Newtownards. It was completed in 1857 in memory of the 3rd Marquis of Londonderry and designed by Charles Lanyon, the same architect of Queen's University Belfast.
The tower ended up being smaller than originally planned due to spiralling building costs.
Below is the view towards Belfast, in the middle of the photo, and a golf course is directly below the tower.
This is the wonderful view over Strangford and Newtownards, the airstrip just visible.

Last Saturday I took my youngest daughter to an 'open farm'. We were entertained by these cute little pigs!
I believe this breed of pig is known as an Oxford Sandy and Black and nicknamed 'Plum Pudding'!
Cute curly tails...
